On DMU's website it says that their average MCAT for the class of 2020 was 490... That seems really low. I was under the assumption that DMU was one of the more competitive schools. Anyone have any insight on that number? On the catalog it said 497. That's a difference of 20 percentile points!

Well I can tell you that if you have a 490 they will tell you to retake unless you have somewhat of a GPA closer to 4.0. It's super competitive and it doesn't hurt to apply and take your chances.

I hope that's the case! That's an embarrassingly low average. I understand if a few people get in with that score, but that is crazy for an average. Did you click on the link? It's possible that I'm understanding it wrong, but it looks like the average MCAT for the class of 2020 was 490...
