Took the july 2015 mcat. Received the breakdown: Chem/Physics: 123 33% CARS: 123 33% Biology: 125 50% Psych: 127 75% Total: 498 (43%) I have a 3.51 cgpa. Science GPA is a 3.3 - 3.4. Which is already low for MD schools. I'm going to be a senior at Loyola Chicago. Part-time job, 3 years of pathology research, publication, shadowing, hospital volunteering, community outreach, and etc. Average/decent ECs. Great letters of Rec. My GPA would be much higher but I was hospitalized my freshman year. I obtained a 4.0 science/cumulative GPA for the most recent semester. I submitted my apps to Rush, Rosalind Franklin, and Loyola since I knew MD was a long shot - I mostly applied to DO schools (23 in total): KYCOM, LEUCOM NEUCOM, Burrell, Ohio Heritage, Des Moines, MSUCOM, Novasoutheastern, West Virginia, Edward Via (both campuses, PCOM (Philly & Georgia), Marian, A.T Still - Arizona/Kirksville, Western, Midwestern, Liberty, Campbell, Lincoln, AZCOM, CCOM and pretty much everywhere excluding the Touros, Alabama, New York. Not a chicago resident. From New England. I just received secondaries from Rosalind Franklin and Loyola. Low for MD schools. Obviously, a 498 isn't good and the last MCAT is offered in September - which isn't enough time. Since I didn't take a prep course and I've heard reviews for Kaplan. I'm thinking about taking a kaplan course and taking the mcat in January 2016. How should I interpret this for both MD and DO schools? Since I've received secondaries from Loyola and Rosalind Franklin - do I bother even filling them out? Am I screwed for this cycle? Would the January MCAT even help me this cycle? How bad is my score?
