    I have a 3.07 cgpa, 300 volunteering in children's hospital, urm

    I am considering taking off a few years to get a mba (free)

    Would it be better just to do a science masters?

    I don't have my science gpa, how do you calculate it.
    I have not taken a mcat practice test.

    Your MCAT is the deciding factor, but either way, as much as I would like to advocate for the MBA (based on the outlook of the healthcare field), the science masters will be the most helpful to counteract the low GPA and up your chances of getting an interview.

    AACOMAS will calculate your GPA and credit hours according to the following rules -- GPAs and credit hours will be calculated for Science, Non-Science and All course work.

    have you even taken the standard 2 bio, 2 chem, 2 org chem, 2 physics yet?

    I agree, the MCAT is definitely the deciding factor. I don't know why so many of these threads have been popping up lately where the OP doesn't even have their MCAT..don't they realize that it can seriously break or make their application.

    Waste of time. Come back when you have the appropriate information available.
