So help me, if you retake that perfectly fine score, I will reach through the electrons and give you a dope slap!I just got my MCAT score back and I've already submitted my primary application. I'm really upset about my CARS score, I know I can improve but I'm wondering, is it worth it? Will I automatically get screened out?
For some more info, I am URM Black female, ivy league undergrad 3.29 sGPA 3.52 cGPA. high upward trend of 3.7-3.8 last two years of college. Was physically assaulted semester of freshman year and got a concussion, my grades took a big hit due to the aftermath of everything.
Thank you for your advice!
edit: I'm a NY resident and would love to attend a NYC school
CARS is the one category where you get cut some slack, and we really, really need URM doctors, especially those with compelling stories and grit.
Start with WashU and radiate outwards. Any school is yours. Be sure to include all SUNYs and the HBCs.
