MCAT: 28P (Verbal 10, Physical Science 9, Biological Science 9)
I have three letters of recommendation (one from a Pod and two science faculty) and plenty of volunteer hours at a local ER. I also have experience working in research at my local University and have spent 4 years working as an officer for an Honors' Society on my campus.
I don't have a legitimate excuse for that poor GPA so I won't even bother. I do have a strong uphill trend during my last year though (3.3+ each quarter for three quarters).
So what do you guys think? If I apply broadly this coming August do you think I have a shot at landing a couple interviews?
I bet if you apply at all 9 schools you'll get some interviews.
If I may ask, is your GPA speckled with low grades, or is it a consistent "B-"? In other words, do you get A's and D's or a lot of B-'s?
