I am currently a junior in college suddenly dedicated to medicine after a life changing experience. Problem is, up until now, my grades have been less than satisfactory (2.8 GPA). I do have 7 years health care experience and a new found love of medicine, but feel that my previous 2 years of college will prevent me from being accepted into ANY medical school. I am now taking the required classes and doing very well, but realize that I will not be able to magically change my GPA from it's pathetic level to a perfect 4.0. Do I stand a chance? Or is there a program out there that will consider my most recent performance or efforts over my "numerically challenged" GPA? Any advice will be greatly appreciated, or suggestions for schools that may look past it. I feel that I have great potential and would be the most wonderful, caring physician, and do not want my past few years with no direction to ruin my chances of following my dreams. Thank you for your time.
