I am a graduating senior psychology major-- a little nontraditional in my career exploration path so far. I was intending to go into medicine in the beginning and took all the premed courses. Unfortunately, I did badly and got around a B- (around 2.7?) GPA in those science courses. After that, I decided to delve into clinical psychology, which I have always loved. I am doing very well in that, almost a 4.0 GPA. My overall is a 3.3. So far, I have interned in a biotech company for a summer (not for me), worked in a microbiology lab (2.5 years after graduation), worked in a psychology lab focusing on child developmental disorders (1.5 years), and another psychology lab focusing on schizophrenia (1 year). I am hoping to be a part of an accepted research poster at a reputable conference, as well as possible part of a publication. Also, I have volunteered at a children's hospital for over 150 hours and am volunteering at a state mental hospital (will be 1 year). Sorry for the long historical explanation but I want to explain the whole picture... After much consideration, I am yet again coming back to the pre-med idea-- I think this is my real passion. My hope is that the importance I place on mental as well as physical well-being will make an impact on my patients, which is why I am again considering medicine. However, I realize that my GPA is very low, and am wondering, what do I need to work on to improve my application? I haven't taken the MCAT yet, and I am thinking about doing a post-bac to re-take courses (will it be the same to retake the classes at my first-class med school?). I HAVE taken the GREs and got good score, although unfortunately that doesn't make a difference Any practical advice or analysis would be incredibly helpful, as I'm in the stage of "can I truly succeed in medicine", especially if I'm not planning on pursuing a MS or MPH before applying? It is just so much to devote to a possibly unattainable goal, and I don't want to give up all my work in psychology to do this is if won't work out. Thanks again for reading!!
