    I have a 34 MCAT, 3.81 Science GPA and 3.85 Overall, so I received an Incomplete grade for my "undergraduate directed research" class, aka my undergrad lab, and then it was replaced with an A shortly after. I'm wondering if this will come off as a red flag to adcoms, is it a dealbreaker?

    Was the change after you submitted your app?

    No on my AMCAS it shows the grade as an A, it just has a little "incomplete" comment next to it, to note that it was previously an incomplete grade.

    Deal breaker is not the word I would be using at all for this

    I have tons of these for my research and they're just because my PI never got around to submitting the grade. It's graded P/F anyway. I really doubt anyone will notice.

    Definitely not a dealbreaker, but I would expect questions about it. However, if you have the grade now, why not just call and explain? Someone will tell you if they give a damn or not.
