I recently received feedback on on my application to a med school. As part of the feedback I was told that:

- there were 66 applicants all scored out of 100.

- I scored 77.8/100 and I was given a Z-score.

- The z-score was listed as " Z-score -33.18". I'm not strong in statistics and I'm not sure if this means negative or just a "-" to separate. (I always though z-score was -3 to 3)

- The average for the top 9 applicants was 88/100

I'm sure this should be some indication of where I stand compared to the rest of the applicants (which is important to me as I am on the wait-list for the school and if I know my rank I can better estimate my chances), however I just don't know how to interpret what my z-score means!

Thanks in advance for any help!
