    A low GPA can be balanced with a decent MCAT. My overall science GPA was a 3.14/4.00. Orgo was a 2.33. Physics was a 2.5. Bio was 3.2.... I raised my GPA with easy science classes i.e. nutrition and atmospheric sciences. Also, some schools value the MCAT more then GPA and vise versa.

    I got 6 interviews and 2 acceptances. Also, if you go to a top 25 college or engineering/physical science, there is a multipliation factor to normalize your GPA with state schools.

    If you do a search of topics like this one I am sure that you will see my screen name, but I will post again if it gives hope (or a good laugh) to anyone interested.

    My cumulative gpa-2.97
    science gpa: 3.03
    my mcat scores 25

    I applied to 4, interviewed at 2 and was accepted at AZCOM

    I have been out of school for a few years working in health care and continuing to do a lot of community service, including abraod. My undergraduate career was an old story of wine, women, and song. But I tried to stay well roanded and make up for my pathetic scholastic achievements in many other areas. If you want it bad enough you will find a way, and they will see it. However, much anxiety would have been prevented had I done better when it counted.


    :p

    all i have to say is that if u get an interview, that means ur almost in...regardless of what ur mcat score or grades were, just make sure you impress the hell out of the adcomms and let them know u want to be a doc more than anyone else. sell yourself cuz this is the only time where ur more than just a bunch of numbers. my mcat scores werent that great and my gpa was avg of med school students but i got an ass load of interviews. I went to only 4 of them and was accepted to 3 schools very early in the process. The interview is important as hell. just make sure u kick ass.

    I was accepted to Ohio University (OUCOM) with a 3.92 GPA and a 21 MCAT. I also had received interviews at Lake Erie and Des Moines with those stats. I then received my August MCAT score of 28 and have received interviews at Nova, Kirksville, Cincinnati, Case Western, and Medical College of Ohio. I declined my interviews at Lake Erie, Des Moines, Nova and Kirksville because I want to stay in Ohio. Hope this helps and good luck to you!

    I was accepted at AZCOM, Des Moines, and Kirksville. I declined interviews at CCOM and PCOM. My overall GPA is a 3.6 and my science is a 3.5 with a pretty low MCAT........23.

    I really think it's all in how you present yourself at your interviews. Good luck to everyone!!

    OK I got a 23 on the MCAT's I have a 3.4 total gpa. Not too much extra stuff except I showdowed a DO. I sent secondaries to 9 schools got interviewed at 5(declined kirksville) and got into 3 (PCOM, LECOM DES MOINES)Waiting on one.

    When your numbers don't shine you better make damn sure you shine at the interview. Good luck!
