I had a really bad freshman year (multiple C's_ but started to pull up from sophmore year and then from junior year on wards I got 4.0's for my last 4 semesters. cGPA: 3.573 sGPA: 3.317 MCAT: 32Q (first time. did not retake) EC's: - volunteered at EMS for a year -2 years research with ugrad prof -3 years of volunteer work with one hospital, and 2 years with another (overlapping time) -shadowed 3 docs for a total of 80 hours - been volunteering for events at my church since I was a freshman in high school, carried this on all throughout senior year of college - been a part of several clubs here and there throughout ugrad - played some intramural sports throughout college - got some pretty nice LOR's from the doctors I shadowed, from my ugrad professors, and from my church (catholic if it matters). By the way, that is not my AMCAS gpa, it is the gpa that I got using my ugrad scores. The school I attended only gives A ( 4.0) B+ (3.5) B (3.0) C+ (2.5) and C (2.0) (there are D's etc but I didn't get a D). Given that our school did the grades on a different scale than AMCA's, will my AMCAS gpa be higher or lower than what my ugrad comes out to be? Am I a viable candidate for MD schools or should I not even apply? Where should I apply if I do apply? I am a resident of CT and went to school in state.
