What schools will my GPA keep me 100% out of for MD? What about for MD/PhD? (I do have MSAR, and I realize that I'm at or below 10% for just about everywhere, so…)If 35 is what your real MCAT scores turns out to be then you're in a great shape to get accepted into any good MD/DO school. You have pretty good research experience, you might wanna think about applying to MD/PhD programs as well
I agree with this. On what do you predicate your MCAT prediction? There are several students that underperform on the real exam. If you come back with a real score, we may be able to be more helpful.
- With a 35 MCAT, a 3.45 GPA with an upward trend isn't a big problem. The MCAT proves you're smart; the upward trend proves you're serious.
- With a 30 MCAT, it's problematic but surmountable. The schools may not be motivated enough to dig for the upward trend unless your personal statement or ECs are compelling.
The point is -- Until you have the real MCAT in the bag, all of this is pure conjecture. Prepare diligently, get your real score, then post again when you've got the facts.
- With a 27 MCAT, it probably is fatal for MD, but DO is still very possible.
