For those of you that have taken Step I and received your scores, how did they compare to your MCAT score? Did anyone score in the mid-20's on the MCAT and do well on Step I?

36 on MCAT, 230 on the boards. I think that your grades during 2nd yr are much more predictive of your performance on the boards then your MCAT score.

29 MCAT 247/99 Step I

I agree that 2nd year grades (and 1st year too to some extent) is much more relevant to your performance

MCAT 39 (11/14/14)
Step I (Mid 240s)

Just got my step I score today! I'm happy...

By the way, my grades were only average for 2nd year classes. I just did a bunch of QBank, BSS, and NMS questions.

26 MCAT
233 USMLE Step I

It had been 6 years since any of my chem or bio classes when I took the mcat. I took it only once.

35 on MCATs
237 on Step1

First year 2 B+'s all else A's
Second year 1 B+ all else A's

Second year class performance is the most relevant, but from what I understand there are some schools out there grade-inflate (ie. many students fail boards despite high % people get honors)

I wonder how this works out for schools with a P/F system for the pre-clinical years.
