    if you're going entirely off numbers, this is straight from relatively prime's stats document she so kindly compiled:

    <table>
    <tr><th>School</th><th>cum gpa</th><th>mcat vr</th><th>mcat ps</th><th>mcat bs</th><th>acceptance %</th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>
    UMDNJ, New Jersey
    </td>
    <td>3.52</td>
    <td> 9.7</td>
    <td> 10.2 </td>
    <td>10.4</td>
    <td> N/A</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>
    UMDNJ, Robert Wood
    </td>
    <td>3.62</td>
    <td> 8.9</td>
    <td> 10.2 </td>
    <td>10</td>
    <td>16.1%</td>
    </tr>

    </table>


    is your mcat well rounded? is your gpa around this range. even if gpa is +/- 0.4 you'd have hope. it depends on so many other aspects of your app. g/l

    (man, this forum really doesn't like html)
