I am a career changer who is planning to go into a post bacc program with a 3.5cGPA. I have no friends who are in med school or were even in premed (a little strange now that I think about it)so I have really done all my research about getting into med school online (esp on GREAT forums like this one). One thing that has me a little worried is that everyone has a ton of ECs, most of which are usually pretty impressive usually. I am a little worried because the only ECs i think I will have (besides my college ECs) will be very standard clinical exp/volunteering/shadowing. I have yet to start my post bacc yet and while I plan to bust my butt and ace those classes and the MCATs, what kinda numbers should I aim for to be competitive in NYC med schools? A few people online have told me that my sci GPA should be higher than my CGPA and that I should aim for a 30 at least on the mcat, but given my seemingly very standard ECs, should i expect to need an even higher MCAT and very high sci GPA? I know it is kind of irrelevant because I will aim for the highest sci GPA and MCAT regardless, but if anyone would be so kind as to humor my neurotic questions haha- On the chance that I perform only conservatively well (30 MCAT and 3.5 sci GPA?), will i have any chance in NYC med schools?
