    Are your practice scores of 515 on AAMC tests or third-party? I also scored lower on my actual exam than I did on practice tests, I think that’s fairly common.

    I don’t think a 503 is going to make or break your application. The difference between a 515 and a 503 is probably about 3 or 4 points out of 100 (based on prior speculation on this forum about Dal MCAT assessment). Every other component of your application is worth more than the MCAT.

    Ultimately, will getting a higher MCAT score help you sleep better, or are you comfortable with the rest of your application (ECs, essay, CASPer, interviews)?

    I think that I would be okay for Dal but I hate the feeling that it’s my only option. I think a better MCAT would open the doors for more interviews at other schools even though Dal is my first choice. 


  2. Hi! I am currently in the process of applying to med schools and Dal is my top choice. I was born and raised in NS, attended university here and currently live in Halifax. I have about a 3.8 GPA and just got my MCAT score back. I got a 503 which is horrible as I was practice testing around 515. I’m wondering if it’s worth my while to re write the test. I have decent activities (volunteer work, TA, etc), have not done research but I do have a lot of work experience. I don’t know if I should focus my time on my essay and application as an in province applicant or if I should start studying again and rewrite the MCAT. Thoughts and advice please????
