    The only school I am aware of with such a requirement is USUHS (the military school). They have a minimum of 3.0 GPA and 8 on each section for the MCAT.

    Univeristy of San Francisco has also a minimum requirement weeding out applicants by MCAT and GPA scores. To me, that is lazy and discriminatory of them. I don't how they correlate good, caring physicians having superb GPAs and MCAT scores. Sure the MCAT scores correlate with excellent basic science years but that doesn't mean you make excellent doctors at all.
