    I don't think we need to tell you that your GPA is great. Being published is also a plus. Have you done clinical stuff? The MCAT is a bit low and you did take it twice. A while ago some members posted that Asian applicants have a really hard time getting in because they are very qualified having very high GPA and MCAT scores. I don't know if this is true or not, but I wouldn't be surprised. Don't get discouraged though. I don't think numbers are the most important thing....it is you. These numbers should be good enough to get interviews and there is when they really get to know you. Good Luck!

    Your stats are definitely good enough to get interviews.What you need to concentrate on is writing a kick *ss personal statement.As a Asian applicant you will need to really set yourself apart from the regular applicant and you do that by writing an excellent statement!!It took me about 6-7weeks to complete my statement.I suppose it was worth it since i had 12 interviews.Good luck you.
