    I hear this a lot but it seems like (by looking at the MSAR) that 3.6 and a 31'ish is the standard:scared:

    Since I fit more towards the 3.5 and a 30, this scares me.

    If that's the average, then there are some people over that, and some people under that. So don't worry! You're golden!

    The average is actually a 3.5 and 29.4 or around there. For most private schools it's a bit higher. It's the state schools that brings that MCAT avg score down.

    Cerebrus,

    Actually there are couple of schools with lower than your score.

    Medical College of Ohio has a 3.4 and 27 average.

    Finch has slightly higher GPA but lower MCAT score, of 3.6 and 29

    Ohio state has a 3.6 and 30 MCAT.

    I think it all depends on the school.

    Tufts has a 3.48 GPA range
