How important are GPA trends? For example my GPA, by the time I apply this summer, will be no where near stellar (hopefully 3.55 or so with a science of 3.6), my GPA freshmen year is really bringing me down, ended the year with a 3.0. Since then I have pulled 3.75 both semesters sophmore year, and most likely will pull 3.85 or better this semester. Now I know that my GPA isnt good enough for alot of schools but with a good MCAT (30-32) and good EC's will my GPA hold me back or will it be looked over do to the conintued upward performance. Thansk in advance.
