I'm hoping someone can help me with my problem: I was really sick during college for an entire year. I won't go into my illness, but it severely messed up my GPA (3.0). The rest of my college career was outstanding and my MCATs, extracurrics, recs, are terrific. My question is this: 1) am I screwed for admission to med school? 2) Is there anything I can do (other than explaining my illness in the AMCAS application) to bring my situation to light to the admissions committees? Should I call every school and explain it to them, or will they take the time to read about it in my application? Any help is certainly appreciated.
