"I wish the administration was more organized and structured in terms of giving out information/schedules/guidance for boards, the clinical years, and applying to residency. Although, everyone does well on the steps (most: 230s-240s) and the match, I feel like it's because we pick up tidbits here and there as opposed to structured info dissemination." | Report Response

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.
