I'm just looking for an informed opinion...I'd like to do MD/PhD (MSTP), esp. at Harvard, Hopkins, Duke, or Wash U (probably in that order). I just got my august mcat, and I want to know whether people think it will be competitive. I know those MSTP's, everything paid, are super-hard to get into. I'm just wondering whether this MCAT will give me an edge, hurt me, or do nothing much. Also, how will it help/hurt for getting into just MD programs at the schools above? Overall: 38T Percentile Rank: 98.7%-99.2%ile Verbal: 12 Percentile Rank: 95.3%-98.4%ile Physical Sciences: 13 Percentile Rank: 95.7%-98.1%ile Biological Sciences: 13 Percentile Rank: 95.7%-99.3%ile Writing: T (perfect) Percentile Rank: 99.3%-99.9%ile edit: Clearly I'm getting a lot of flack for this thread, but I'm serious! I know these programs are supercompetitive, but I don't know whether it's that the applicants have amazing everything, including 40+ mcat scores. With 2-5% admissions rates from a pool of self-selected top applicants, who knows!
