What GPA and MCAT scores do I need to be competitive?

There is no set of magic numbers that guarantee acceptance to medical school. Successful applicants have a background which supports an ability to complete the medical school curriculum. Medical school admission committees use college GPA and MCAT scores as an indicator of student potential for success.

Competitive applicants typically have a GPA of 3.5 or better and double digit MCAT scores (10 or higher) on each of the individual sections.
