So I wanted to bounce my story off you guys. I graduated last year with a 2.77 GPA, likely due to a combination of poor time management with working full time to pay for school. I have excellent work experience, as I've worked for 5 years as a pharmacy technician, 1.5 years as a phlebotomist/lab aide at a hospital. At both of these experiences I was able to work one on one with pharmacists who taught me the different mechanisms of many drug classes, and pathologists/lab techs, who showed me the ins and outs of diagnosis based on common laboratory tests, and through histological assessment. The last two years of college I spent doing undergraduate research in two different labs. At the moment I am a research technologist in a lab (dealing with medical genomics) I joined in my senior year of undergrad, and have had two accepted first-author publications in reputable peer-reviewed journals, one of which has gained considerable media attention. I have other publications in the works as we speak. I will be taking the new MCAT in January 2016 (will register in October when 2016 dates are open) and I have been studying for it very diligently. I'm looking into a number of post-bacc programs, including the MMS at Drexel, and a post-bacc at Temple University or PCOM. I understand that it will be very difficult to take attention away from my undergraduate GPA, however I am dedicated to trying my hardest to do just that. Is there anything that I am missing that might strengthen my chances?
