    really?
    why drop GW? i was looking them up in MSAR and they have pretty low medians surprisingly. i think their medians were like 3.6 and 30-31 mcat. it's also a private school so they shouldnt prefer DC kids. so why do you say drop it?

    Your thread was previously moved to the WAMC thread and then you created another one. The stickied WAMC thread was created specifically for threads exactly like this one. If you look through it you will find an abundance of questions asking about a person's acceptability at a school and also about which schools to apply too.

    This thread is basically asking "Which schools should I cut/keep giving me the best chance of getting in?"

    As this thread has already been once moved to the correct location I am closing this one. Please do not create new threads when your previous one was already moved.
