Hi everyone, I have talked to former pre-meds who say they no longer pursue medicine because their grades aren't good enough. Now, I didn't venture to ask what their gpa's were, but mine is a 3.2 with a *sucky* senior year due to personal issues. Now I'm taking courses post-bac and trying to redeem myself, and I did well on the MCAT (36S), but I would like to get a sense of what is realistic at this point. I'm also a CA resident; assuming that I get all A's for a year, do I still have a shot at the UCs, or even a tier 1 or 2 school? --btw, how is that even defined? where is the cutoff between tier 1/2 or 2/3? Just want a sense of what schools I should look at and where I should stop wasting my time. Congrats on everyone's interviews and acceptances! Good luck!
