    4. Rosalind Franklin
    5. Medical College of Wisconsen Milwaukee
    Here are my stats:

    sorry i do not have an answer for you, but i was wondering how you traveled on those medical mission trips. were they run through your school or an agency/organization? if you have a link that'd be great.

    i wish you the best of luck on all of your apps.

    you can submit AMCAS without the MCAT. One thing i would be worried about is that your downward GPA trend. Not counting community college credits your GPA and science GPA is on the low side. My understanding is that students who get with GPA's in your range have an upward grade trend. One ADCOM i spoke to recently said that a downward grade may indicate that your ability to handle medical school is questionable. The last semester on your AMCAS transcript is going to be below a 3.0 which i assume is gonna turn off some schools. My advice is do well your senior year and you'll be fine. Bring up your science gpa and get a decent MCAT score and you'll be a good candidate.
