    hard to say really as none of us are on admissions committees. each school does things a little bit differently. for some, it might depend on the school you go to or if they for some reason have doubts about your abilities.

    if you go to a reputable school without grade inflation, they might overlook a weakish mcat score.

    if you go to a questionable school or one known for grade inflation, they will probably want to see good mcat scores.

    if they have doubts about your ability to do well in science courses, mcats will probably weigh heavily.

    My friend was mentored by an ADCOM where he got into medical school. Apparently the ADCOM said each MCAT section was weighted about equal to the GPA. So, MCAT=3xGPA.

    I don't know if it was true. I know the values of GPA and MCAT are plugged into an equation though.

    There should be a warning when you post in a thread like this. "Warning, you are about to necro bump an extremely old thread. Do you wish to continue?"
