So I switched majors and decided to go to medical school after two years in Mechanical Engineering. Switched to Biomedical Engineering, pre-med. I was only an OK student before, had about a 3.4 going into junior year before I decided to switch. This past year with anatomy, Orgo 1+2, genetics, orgo lab, plus engineering classes I got a 3.83 and am now up to 3.53 cum. Does this number hurt my chances? I know I can tell the story in the rest of my application, but I'm wondering if theres anything I can do to avoid being cut by GPA alone. Graduating 5 yrs in 2017, applying in 2016. EC's include a couple hundred hours in the lab, starting this summer (25 hrs/week, unpaid) and continuing this year, probably going to get my name on a paper or two. PI seems to like me. Working on getting volunteering/shadowing going; again, I'm late to the game. What's the most important thing for me to do between now and the spring?
