It's tough to say. What do the last 60 hrs look like? What is your science GPA? What are your ECs? Will you have strong LORs? What will your MCAT score be? All of these things will be used to determine admission along with your GPA. If you are high in other areas, it may offset the low GPA. However, you should try for a 30+.Originally posted by JJJD
I will be taking the MCAT this April. With my GPA (3.2) what would my MCAT be in order for me to have a chance at MD school
well i applied to 43 schools and sent in secondaries for 39-40 of those schools...i didnt let the gpa averages control what schools i applied to since i knew that my gpa would be below the avg of most md schools. i looked at which schools accepted kids with averages near my mcat scores and also places i thought i could endure the next 4 years of my life.Originally posted by JJJD
Which schools would you suggest applying to (beside the DO, which I will apply to)

Unless you are really interested in Osteopathy, I wouldn't apply to DO schools. As long as you bring up your MCAT, you still have a good chance at getting accepted to an MD program.
As for which schools to apply to...get a copy of the MSAR book from the AAMC. Then look for schools that have similar GPA's or MCATs as yours. Apply to those. Definitely apply to your state school too. If you can, apply to around 20 schools, but choose wisely.
