Add MCAT to resume?

Postby cgd5054 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:39 pm

Should I add my MCAT score (507/74%) to my resume that I submit to law schools.I was a bio major/biomedical masters student who has no discomfort in having law schools know that I wanted to go to medical school previously.

Is it wise to add my MCAT score to my resume? 507 is a 74th percentile score.

Thank you so much.

It's unlikely to help you, especially since that's not a super impressive score, but it could raise some awkward questions in the mind of those reading your application. ("Is law just a backup for this pre-med washout?") I don't think this is a good idea.

Follow up: is it wise to include a measurement (in centimeters) of the diameter of my testicles if they are of average size?

Follow up: same question, but applied to a mole with irregular borders

What makes you think this would help? You realize you are applying to law school, right?

As others have said, no.
And don't put your LSAT on your resume later in life either.
