    I am wondering if anyone can give me any advice. Simply put: I have a 3.5 GPA, and MCAT scores of
    bio 11
    physics 8
    verbal 9
    writing R
    I have had 2 research jobs (one clinical, one in a lab), and great letters of rec.
    i have applied to 17 schools in the North East US.
    Am I doomed? I thought I would have done better on the mcat (just got scores yesterday)
    thanks for your help,
    greenpink

    You seem to have a pretty good chance of getting in, it depends on where u applied? Don't worry about it to much, have u gotten ne interviews yet?

    Good luck and keep me posted:clap:

    I would certainly expect that you'd get interviews. It looks like your numbers are right in the mix of things, and your research is a bit of a cut above the masses. Do you have any health care experience you can bring up? Anyway I say keep going and give yourself every chance possible. Also look into applying to DO schools. Not because they're sub-par or an easy backup, but becasue most are good schools and in the end you're a Physician.

    Hello,
    I had the exact same MCAT score except a P in writing. With lots of clinical experience and I have gotten two acceptances!!! You should be competitive. Good luck:)
