    Hey guys,
    I am new to this site and have applied for the August '06 semester. I am not trying to make this a "What Are My Chances Thread", however, the admission counselors are hard to get a hold of and lack answers to some questions. My application is complete except for my MCAT score b/c I am taking it in April. I have been trying to get a hold of someone in admissions but I've had no luck. By taking the MCAT in April, does this give the ADCOM enough time to review my "complete" application since they will not recieve my scores till mid/late June. Also, I have been looking around on the main website and it only gives MCAT average's for 2002 or 2003. What was last semester's, or the past year's average MCAT score? For AUC, what is considered high and what is considered low? If you guys that are already enrolled or anyone that has accurate info have any imput on this that would be great. Thanks in advance and good luck.

    Not really, there's some averages put on the AUC website I believe. Just try to get the best score you can. If you have above a 40, I think you're pretty much guaranteed.
