What are your general comments?

"I discovered that since my interview, there has been at least one underrepresented minority applicant accepted to the school with a subpar MCAT of less than 25. A friend of mine had an MCAT score of 24 (he is white) and was told by the director of admissions that he unless he improved that test score, he would not ever stand a chance of admission to U of L. I don't understand the double standard here. If his MCAT of 24 is not acceptable for medical school acceptance (or an interview for that manner) why was this other person admitted? It does not make any sense to me. I feel that if the school is going to admit an applicant with a low MCAT, then all applicants with similar low scores should at least receive an interview and be allowed to show what they do have. A low MCAT does not necessarily mean lack of intelligence, as some admissions committees believe. I am not upset about the person getting in with the 22, but I am upset with how the director of admissions treated my friend with the 24. By the way, the friend with the 24 MCAT worked full-time during his 5 years of undergraduate training and has a wife and a child. He also volunteers at a free clinic and has a GPA of around 3.6. So, he is not stupid." Report Response
