    Mean MCAT for those admitted is about 30-31 these days. The higher your score, the more selective schools you can reasonably apply to.

    30 or above is ideal. anything less than a 27 is trouble. No less than an 8 in any section.

    I don't know how your practice scores were, but with your grades and EC I'd say you're an almost automatic in with a 31+ to at least one med school lol

    I think you should be fine with that GPA as long as you didn't bomb your MCAT. A good rule of thumb I've been told is (GPA * 10) + MCAT > 70 and you'll be competitive.

    If you get 30+ you are golden, but even if you are at a 28 or 29 I still think you will make it.

    Thanks so much for the responses. I am going to be crossing my fingers like everyone else for the test results in the next few days.

    I think you'll have a GREAT chance at top tier schools if you score 30+.
