    Cum GPA: 3.0
    Science GPA: 4.0
    MCAT: Haven't taken yet

    How will the 3.0 overall look on my application? What kind of MCAT am I looking at to be competitive or is being competitive out of my range entirely thanks to my overall GPA?

    It is almost impossible to answer that question without more information. A lot will depend on your MCAT and your ECs are extremely important. I wouldn't worry about the GPA too much as long as your MCAT and ECs are good. :luck:

    So you got an A in every science class but a C in every non-science class? Even those weird electives like survey of art? How did that happen?

    I'm non traditional. When I was in ugrad, I did horribly. I think my GPA was something like 2.5 or 2.6. The only science I took was Evolution and I got a C in that even. I went back after being in the real world for a few years, retook Evolution just to get the grade replacement thing AACOMAS offers. By app time, I will have 68 credits and so far (50+ credits in), I have a 4.0 so my science GPA is now a 4.0 and hopefully will be by the time I send in my application but my overall GPA is much lower with low hopes of bringing it up to a respectable number.

    You'll have to have an explanation ready for why you did so aweful in UG, but otherwise having a higher science GPA is much better than the other way around. Just make sure you don't get a 2 on the VR section, or it will look like you can't communicate outside of science.
