I have a low G.P.A of 3.17. I have not calculated my science G.P.A. I pretty sure is around a 3.1 as well. I have not taken the Mcat. I am pretty good on extracurricular activities and research. However I need to work on volunteer hours. I am suppose to apply next year but with my low G.P.A and I don't know any more. My G.P.A had been a 2.82 a year ago, but I worked hard to bring it to a 3.17 this semester. Next semester it will be something close to a 3.3 if I continue at this rate. Even with my hard work, I feel I will not get a shot at acceptance if I apply next year. Although I have not taken the MCAT, I just think my G.P.A will weigh a whole lot more. My G.P.A had been bad my first 2.5 years of college (averaging 2.8), due to remission from cancer and surgeries. I know the health thing seem excusable however I don't want to rely on it. I just feel I should have done better. I considered grad school because I like research and I felt they will accept me easier with my low G.P.A. But I feel I'm not doing it for the right reasons. I have always wanted to go the med school but as I get close to graduating I am beginning to have doubts. I don't know if it is because of my low grade profile or frustrations. I don't know if it is worth it staying in school longer to get my G.P.A to a 3.5 before applying. At this point I am really tired and frustrated and in need of your advice. Thanks in advance for your support.
