    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!

    Do Carribean Med Schools care for GPA??

    Do Carribean med schools look heavily into gpa? I'm hearing a mix of yes and no. I know St. George's factors in gpa. I'm looking into St. Matthew's, Ross and AUA. I've seen little to no mention of gpa requirements on their websites, which is why I need clarification. Thanks.
