"The period of time in which we all sat and waited for our next event (the Q&A session, in my case) felt very quiet and tense. I think it would have been nice to fit in an info session or introduction from a faculty or staff member. We waited for about 30 mins feeling very nervous and bored. We would have benefited from having the info packet at the beginning, rather than at the end of our interview day- I really didn't get why they did it this way."

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
