    I know that Touro (Bay Area, California) pre-screens for GPA and MCAT scores before sending out a secondary. When you receive the secondary it even says that they pre-screen -- and from what I've been told it's because they're a new school and are trying to keep high averages for GPA/MCAT...

    I do believe that MSUCOM does as well. I talked with another incoming student who claimed that certain aspects of the primary are looked at and then a secondary is sent out if you meet specific criteria. I am unsure as to whether or not this is correct, but that is what I was told. Good luck!

    According to COMP's website, they have a minimum GPA.
