As we talk about the importance of stats in medical school admissions, I am left to wonder what our MCAT scores really determine. Do these scores really predict our potential as a medical student or do they simplify the admissions screening process? What's really the difference between 8's across the board and 12's? Will your board scores be higher? Do higher MCAT scores say that you will be a better doctor or that you are more deserving of the chance? Your comments please.
