    Different scools have different screening criteria or formulas. You should have a shot somewhere assumming no other red flags. However, based on this post, I'm assuming that you have not taken the MCAT and are "planning" on a 39 MCAT? So, I think the discussion will become more relevant once you get that 39.

    If your undergrad science grades ended with a rising trend, you may not need any repair work. If you've already demonstrated an ability to get great grades in upper-level science, you're probably fine with such a strong MCAT score. Assuming, that is, that you have the usual and cutomary other ECs, strong LORs, PS and essays with the right tone, and adequate interview skills.

    are you kidding? a 3.4/39 will open sooooo many doors. no problem to land an interview, maybe itll be harder to land one at a school such as penn, but i highly doubt youll have to much to worry about.
