    What's the minimum score for the essay part to have a chance to get in any MD schools?
     
  2. Thread continues after this sponsor message. SDN Members do not see this ad.

  3. A friend of mine got a "L" on the writing section. He was one of the first accepted at our state school.
     
  4. English was also his first language.

    answer: J

    if you have solid V, P, B, scores (10+) you can pretty much doodle pictures in the essay books.

    Makes you wonder why they even have that pidly section
     
  7. Because if they didn't then our tests may actually be graded in a timely manner.

    I think it is more to test stamina as it is difficult to switch modes from analytical to creative and then back to analytical again.

    Before you guys get too depressed, remember this: the average writing sample score for accepted applicants is "O". So there's no way that could be so if only people with M through T scores are accepted.
