would you guys be shocked if i told you that I know a girl with these numbers: MCAT 21 GPA 3.55 (*got an AA from a community college, so that's 60 credits of easy classes, then went to an average difficulty school and all she has to show for it is that gpa. she's graduated now) RESEARCH: she was on a howard hughes scholarship or something so she did what was required as far as research...nothing exceptional EC'S: nothing special. run of the mill type of stuff OK, so this girl seems very unimpressive. I believe she might be an URM, but how the heck does that make up for her numbers. she's teaching high school biology for this year off, since she graduated spring 2001. here's the crazy part: this girl has an interview at George Washington AND at Temple. can someone explain how that's possible...because i just got put on hold (pre-interview) at GW and it doesn't make sense.
