SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey Guys, My overall GPA is about a 3.3, but my BCPM is 3.0. I had a problem with my MCAT test the first time I took it. I live in New York City, and I took the train to get to my test. However, the train got stuck underground for over an hr, and I had to get out to walk to my test center. This occurred on a hot day and I was not in my best shape as I had a headache throughout the test. I ended up getting a 24 and the only reason I didn't void it was because I feared the delay in my application. I took the exam again 1 month later and got a 32 this time (P-11, V- 8, B- 13). I was able to print out an article highlighting the train problems on my test day. I was wondering if medical schools consider such events and understand it. I have also done research for over 4 years and published one paper. I am the third author on that paper. In addition, I have volunteered in a hospital ER for over 2 years. I was also a resident assistant (RA) for 3 years. Also, what are my chances of getting into medical school with the low GPA but somewhat decent MCAT score ? Do medical schools average both my scores ? I have listed the medical schools I am applying to below... what are my chances in those schools: University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine Tulane University School of Medicine Meharry Medical College Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicin New York University SUNY at Buffalo Medical School SUNY Upstate Medical University University of Rochester School of Medicine and Den Albert Einstein College of Medicine Mount Sinai School of Medicine New York Medical College Stony Brook University - School of Medicine State University of New York Downstate Medical Cen George Washington University Sch of Med & Hlth Sci Howard University Georgetown University School of Medicine The University of Vermont College of Medicine Drexel University College of Medicine Temple University School of Medicine Thank you guys !
