    Stats of Direct Accept vs CFP for SGU

    Hi everyone! For those of you who were accepted to SGU, I was hoping you could list your stats? Were you accepted directly or asked to complete MSAP or CFP? I'm mostly looking for MCAT scores, but if you have your cGPA, sGPA, and/or post-bacc GPA feel free to post those too! Thanks!
