    You have to get both of those GPAs up. Currently you have no chance at MD/DO schools. Your next 2 years should be filled with heavy course work for grade replacements. I think you should put off the MCAT until closer to when you are applying. It would be sad to get a great score now and have it expire.

    Somewhere west of St. Louis
    You have yet to show that you can make it through a med school curriculum. Take a SMP or post-bac.
