SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello everyone. I'm stuck in a dilemma. Current GPA- 3.5 Overall, Science- 3.4 I have taken various practice MCATS and DATS- MCATS score around 35-40, and DATS score around the 25-27 range. (since this isnt a DAT forum- the highest scores on dat avg are around 28-30) I believe my gpa will stabilize at the 3.5/3.4 mark, but I'm thinking thats not good enough for medical school. My ECs are well done, research, internships, overseas dental work, overseas medical work, TA etc, So I won't list them. But my GPA has dropped from 4.0 freshman yr, to 3.7 sopho, to 3.5 junior which I know isnt good. But I have taken some really- bad teachers in physics and ochem, but my scores on the standardized tests- make up for it. Perhaps I can bring this up in my interviews. But anyways- is medical school a long shot for me? And to be honest, I'm really leaning towards dentistry now due to lifestyle and other various incentives. My parents however really are pushing for the medical school route. I just want to know- can I do it, if i wanted to? Right now, I'm resigning to getting B and A's just because I know dental school needs a 3.2-3.5 GPA to get in, I know medical school needs a 3.6+- So I need at leasts A-, A's to keep it up. I don't know whether my current gpa can pull it off. Is medical school a long shot for me?
