Did you score a 27 on your MCAT? Wondering what to do next?
A 27 on the MCAT is a good score and is 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 good 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 very strong. A high GPA (greater than 3.8) 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.
