Moderate Grades/good MCAT

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by kmmath, Jul 14, 2000.

  1. What if you have mediocre grades...3.44 overall and 3.2 science but a really good (above 30) MCAT...do you stand a chance then? Do admissions committees put more weight on the MCAT than the GPA?

    Some admissions committees put more weight on GPA, but good MCATs will balance out that mediocre GPA (along with good extracurriculars). Check out MSAR from the AAMC and get the average MCAT/GPAs for the schools that you are interested in.

    A buddy of mine got in to med school with a 3.4 undergrad, 33 MCATs, he did an MPH.
    When you do a grad degree, those grades are considered first before your undergrad grades
