Is it ok to apply with a 3.2 cGPA and 3.48 sGPA? or should I retake classes that I had C's on to increase my cGPA although my MCAT score is 27P?

Yes. Apply early.

If I were you, I'd calculate how much of a difference in your GPA it would make. If it's worth retaking, I'd look into summer courses so that after you apply you can update them with your new grades by the end of summer.

Good luck. :thumbup:

Personally i'd retake a few class and try to increase your cgpa to like a 3.4. Then you'll more competitive. Remember apply when you think your ready, because reapplying isn't a nice thing. So you could probably apply this cycle if you do it early and manage to get a few acceptances. However like I said, it's my opinion that you should try prop up your application and get rid of any red flags.

Yes you should apply and apply early. Good sGPA and a decent mcat. Retake a couple of courses in which you got a C and get As; that'll take you cgpa to close to 3.3-3.4 range which should land you acceptances my friend
