    WAMC? 518 MCAT, 3.65 cGPA, 3.58 sGPA, T20 school, upward trend

    I was wondering what my chances are based on my stats. I have 400+hours of shadowing/clinicals, research (1 publication), and a leadership role (president of a club). Volunteering is on the low side, however (130 hours). I am a California resident. Any school list would be greatly appreciated...

    MD & DO What are my chances and Where to apply - Strong Upward Trend (3.6 / 520)

    Strong upward trend vs. SMP

    I feel like the purpose of SMP is to show that you could thrive in med-school level courses. I have a very strong upward trend where I started out with a 2.3 sgpa and probably will end with a 3.3 sgpa. Basically, my last two years of college shows huge growth since my earlier two years. Would...

    Upward trend, but too late?

    Hi all, TL;DR I had a lot to sort out from childhood and, while I won't go into details, I started university with diagnosed depression. I also had a lot of growing up to do too. Consequently, the first two and a half years I managed a 3.2 cGPA/ 2.88 sGPA, but by some stroke of luck and a lot...

    Chance for Recovery or am I done for?

    Hi guys, I just finished my first semester at university and to be quite frank, my grades are **** (and not like OHHHH MUH 3.9 kind of bad).

    Terrible Cumulative gpa but upward trend

    Hi SDN. So I recently input my grades in on a excel worksheet that calculated AMCAS gpa and I was shocked to see how low it was. This was probably due to me failing almost all of my classes my first year of college(I was having health issues). I do not know what to do? My sophomore year was a...

    So by the end of my junior year I should have around a 3.4 cumulative gpa.

Ever since I had a pretty high upward trend by having mostly As or A-s my...

I've been enlisted Air Force for four years now. I graduated high school in 2009 with a 2.something GPA and...

    Recent grades

    Could anyone give insight into whether any M.D. programs focus, when evaluating transcripts, primarily on grades earned during the final 3-4 (3's ideal) semesters of college? I'm a career changer (no science). Doing my own research but welcome suggestions. Thanks all.

    Do ADCOMs Look at cGPA and sGPA by Semester?

    Hi all, I just had a quick question about the ways adcoms look at GPAs. I heard from someone that if you apply early, that ADCOMs will look at GPA by semester, which is really important in my case when looking at my stats: (but if you apply later then they just look at stats as a whole) At...
