  1. 2006? Damn that was 15 years ago! I guess the grades haven’t changed too much though lol
  2. Where did you find this range? the one for 2020 was 79.28-96.59
  3. I would try rewriting the MCAT. But this is coming from someone who hasn’t gone through this process yet. The average seems to be higher than 500 for those admitted. But I just wanted to say that I feel a similar frustration towards not really knowing what your calculated average is going into. I wish there was a way to confirm what the calculated average they end up using! It’s difficult for those who have a more “complicated” calculation with several degrees, etc.
  4. Lots of OOP! Any IP invites / non-invited here? Congrats to everyone !
  5. I attended the WebEx thing they had the other day and kept emphasizing that you need to complete your degree within 5 years. Just something to keep in mind I guess
  6. Hey, I am thinking about this again. I don't see how it's fair, for example if: Applicant A: 1 sibling, makes 20k, parents make 20k each = 60k Applicant B: 5 siblings, each making 20k + parents 20k each = 140k How do they account for the applicant B that has more siblings making their family income over the 80k threshold?
  7. for anyone on the waitlist: what are your stats?
  8. Out of curiosity, does anyone know who and/or how many people comprises the "Admissions Committee"?
  9. I have emailed them and unfortunately they gave me a blanket response saying that they will not respond to inquiries about how the DSAAP is “interpreted”, which is a bit concerning! To be fair, I just looked over the info document and it now has a bit more information on it. But I also seem to never be able to get a response from them other than “please refer to information document”.
  10. Hi, I’m looking at the DSAAP requirements. For calculation of Family income, it says that family (biological parents and/or guardians and/or siblings can be involved). I have 4 siblings. So for the calculation of gross family income over 5 years, does that mean it would include the income of both my parents, and also my 4 siblings? Also, it mentions the 5years post high school. If I graduated in 2010, would the 5 years considered be 2010-2015 or 2015-2020? The admissions office won’t answer my questions regarding this. thanks for any in
  11. Did you already graduate and are taking classes after that? i read that they don’t consider courses taken in order to get a better average if you are delaying your degree in order to do so. is that true? Can anyone confirm that for me? thanks
  12. So do you guys think it matters for very bad marks to be on the transcript, even though it is a mark that’s not one of the most recent 120 credits?
  13. Ahh, okay I do think this clears it up for me a bit more! Thank you guys :) I did send them an email and they did not explain anything further, they simply referred me to the website. The application package is pretty comprehensive but I did need clarification which they did not offer at all lol, so thank you guys again!
  14. Hey guys, I'm a little confused at how averages are calculated. I currently have 140 credits and working on a second degree. Do they take the average from the last 120? I also have some classes where I've failed and retaken. Are both of those marks used in the calculation or just the retaken one? Also I am a part time student, does that matter? Thanks
