Hey all, I'm new to SDN and just started reading some of the posts on this forum in the past few months. I've read a lot about people who had sub 30 MCATs and still got in somewhere, because they had a high GPA and a ton of EC's. But I don't really have a lot of EC's so I was hoping for some advice on what to do. My MCAT's a 29N (10V, 9PS, 10BS) and my total and bcpm GPA's are between 3.7-3.8. As for my EC's, I started volunteering at a hospital ICU this past February (nothing too special, just the standard hospital volunteer), and I worked for 6 months in a research lab on campus (I assisted a post doc w/ his experiments, doing more than washing dishes, but I didn't have my own projects). I was in a few clubs on campus during freshman and soph years (I'll be a 4th year undergrad this fall) but wasn't an officer or anything, and I play intramural basketball now and then (which probably doesn't matter), but that's about it. Sorry for the long description of my life story but I was hoping for some advice. Should I retake the MCAT this August? Should I apply now anyway? Should I not apply and get more EC's? Or??????? I'm not picky about med schools and will go anywhere I get accepted. And I'm not planning on applying to any top 10 schools. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!
