  1. Pre-Medical
Hello, this is my first post on here so I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong section or my format is off. I graduated 2 years ago with a very rough cGPA of 3.05, and that is with multiple grade replacements. I have volunteer and work experience in the medical field. I have 3 LORs, 1 from science professor, 1 from nurse I worked with, and 1 from a volunteer coordinator. I am also able to get a LOR from a physician I shadowed. I received my MCAT score back of 506 (took it three times, score steady improved) I have looked at some schools for SMPs and I'm worried my GPA is too low for their cutoff. For example, LECOM requires a sGPA of 2.7 which I dont qualify for. Do you guys know of any SMPs that have accepted low GPAs? So far I have complied a list of schools including:
  • ACHE
  • EVMS
  • RFU
  • Rutgers
  • Tufts
  • University of Cincinnati
  • NSU
Some of these schools have linkages to their medical school like a guaranteed interview if you make the right grades in the program, but when I looked up their average MCAT and GPAs (508, 3.5) for the incoming students, I noticed these stats are a lot higher than mine. So even if I did complete a masters program, I may not be accepted to their school. Can anyone offer advice on how to get accepted to a SMP even with a low GPA, or know a program that emphasizes graduate GPA? Thank you.
