Average numbers for USUHS are a 3.5/30 (if you're low in one number, you can use the other to boost your application). The school has also gotten more popular over the past few years, so it's getting a little more competitive. Would advise applying as early as possible. Being an Eagle Scout is a nice extra-curriculur to have (shows discipline, leadership, etc etc). You can definitley leverage that. But in and of itself, the military doesn't give you any formal recognition or credit for your activity in BSA.
Anyway, check out the USUHS thread, lot of good reading . . .good luck.
Yes, i definitely agree. You dont need prior experience and as for the 2.8 GPA, that is highly unlikely. Like he said you would really have to rock the MCAT and i mean get almost a perfect mark.
