Hi everyone, first I want to say how helpful this site has been for me, I only wish I had found it earlier! Here is my situation: I decided on pre-med late in college (junior year), and I had to quickly jump into all those science pre-reqs and didn't do very well in them. I have a science gpa of 3.32 and an overall gpa of 3.65. I don't have much volunteer experience either, because the summer after my junior year I was diagnosed with a chronic disease. I'm ok now, but my senior year was very difficult as I tried to get it under control. I did ok on the MCAT despite this with a 10 PS 10 BS and 11 V. I graduated in June, and I moved to Chicago and I work in a research lab and will likely get a publication out of it. I didn't have anyone helping me or giving me advice on being pre-med, and I didn't realize how important it was to get my apps in early, so most of them were not complete until Sept through October. I guess I'm just wondering how badly I messed up my chances of getting into med school with a low science gpa, not much volunteering, and applying late? And the gpa can't change much, but I can volunteer this year and apply earlier next year, would that help? Thanks so much!
