I always hated these type threads, as I'm sure many of you do, considering how random admissions can be. Rather than sit here and continue to wallow in my own self-pity, I figured I'd ask all of y'all, based on my current stats, whether or not I've got a chance at getting into med school. I guess what I'm looking for is either some positive encouragement, or someone to tell me I better start looking for a job overall gpa: 3.52 sci gpa: 3.44 EC's: volunteer work at church; volunteer at hospital (help teach CPR classes, setup for inservices, file papers, run errands); 2 years employment as a hospital orderly MCAT: still waiting on my scores I know my stats are far from stellar, but above all I have a great desire to be a doctor, and I know I could be a good one just given the chance. And please, refrain from bashing me too much for this thread. I'm sure all of you remember when you were at the stage of self-doubt. --edit-- I should probably include that I'm a Texas resident. And unfortunately, included in that GPA are two C's, one D, and one F.
