    Hi. Just wondering about my chances.

    Chemistry 72%
    History 78 %
    Biology 83%
    Second Year: Organic Chem I 78% Organic Chem II 62%
    History 81%
    Genetics 76% Cell Biology 77% Statistics 80 % Environmental Bio 90% Biology Labs 77%
    Molecular Bio 87%
    I will be entering my 3rd year this September.
    The last two summers I have been working at a Pharm. Company in Research and Development.
    Last 3 years I have been volunteering at Hospitals (Physio, Emerg.)
    Have not yet written my MCAT, but believe that I can do well.
    I know that my grades are weak, but I'm hoping that they don't kill my chances.
    Any suggestions about improving my grades and thoughts on my chances of getting into med school?

    Could you please post what these percentages translate into grade-wise and what school you are from and where you are from?
    Thanks.

    from e:

    First year GPA 2.80
    Second year GPA 3.50
    University of Western Ontario, Canada
    Also, I heard that the US does not consider Canadian students as international. Any truth to that? How much does med-school cost in the States? Is $40 000 true?
    Thanks.
