    Is the first GPA cum? Maybe you'd want to have the acceptance school first? (So the list could be alphabatized and so we could see what different schools were looking for in a postbac student).

    I didn't do a formal postbacc program, just had to retake one class. I've been out of grad school since 1996. My master's degree GPA was 3.88. I changed the headings to add science GPA.

    Ugrad GPA, Sci GPA, PB GPA, MCAT, Schools

    3.25, not listed, 3.95, 31Q, Southern Illinois University, USUHS
    3.23, 3.03, 4.00, 36P, Medical College of Ohio

    Can you also include previous MCAT scores and whether you were in or out-of-state? For example:

    3.51, 3.61, 3.98, (36Q, 31R, 29P), Vermont (a,o), Loma Linda (i,i)

    Thanks, I know it would help me.

    um, there's absolutely no organization to this, so let's see...

    BS (1995), UCSD, 3.3, 29R
    MS (1996), UCSD, 3.7, 34S
    PhD (2002), USC, 3.6, 36R

    Interview at Hawaii, waitlist at SUNY-Upstate, acceptance at UVM. Zero interviews before this year.

    I did the Harvard post-bacc program...some clinical experience...decent MCATs....21 interviews and 5 acceptances so far. It seems that being a little older and experienced is a big advantage.
