28 MCAT



Did you score a 28 on your MCAT? Wondering what to do next?

A 28 on the MCAT is a good score and well above average. However, the average score of students admitted into MD medical schools hovers around 30 on the MCAT each year. This score is above the average for DO schools, so you’ll probably be a strong candidate in those programs especially if the rest of your application is acceptable.

If you’re looking to get into an MD school, your application will have to be strong. A high GPA will help, as well as some activities that make you stand out. Enthusiastic letters of recommendation are always necessary.

If you choose to retake the MCAT, try taking a review course or using the MCAT Examkrackers Complete Review books. Check out the links below.

January 31st, 2009: MCAT!


Yes, my posting frequency has dropped off the map lately. Don’t worry, there’s a good reason. I’m taking the MCAT soon! Jan. 31st to be exact. 

I’ll be sure to tell you all about the MCAT experience. I’m studying hard, but it’s a difficult test. It’s at 8 in the morning, so I just hope my mind is clear…

Anyone else taking the MCAT the same date?

The MCAT is a big deal. It tests your basic science knowledge, but more importantly your critical thinking and reading comprehension skills. Medical schools need a way to figure out not just whether you can memorize facts or understand biological concepts. They want to know if you have the brain capacity, focus and work ethic to handle the rigors of medical school. The MCAT is one way they determine that.
If you know very little about the MCAT, here are some links to get you started.
