Hi, I received my MCAT score today, and to say the least, I am a little bit disappointed. I got a 28 (PS 10, VR8, PS10). I hoped to get a 30 but that is simply not the case.

I am a Canadian citizen looking into US MD programs and need some advice as to if it is even worth my time applying.

Some of my information is as follows:

I am a second year pharmacy student with a GPA of 3.85 - 3.95 (GPA in my province is on a 4.5 scale).

I have completed a Bachelors degree in biology and microbiology, while enrolled in pharmacy. I am going into my 4th year university. (This shows how terrible my life has been for the past 3 years)

I have about 100 hours of volunteer experience total and some health care experience (due to my enrolment as a pharmacy student)

I work about 10 hours a week during the school year and full time during my summers. I work as a life guard. I have accumulated about 2100 hours in the past three years.

I speak three different languages, English, Russian and French (Not as well as the other two but still am able to converse).

I am an immigrant who was originally born in Moldova (a small european country).

I have been involved with a number of student groups.

I dont have any research.

PLEASE GIVE ME ADVICE AS TO IF IT IS EVEN WORTH MY TIME APPLYING TO US MEDICAL SCHOOLS!!!

Retake the MCAT and get way more experience in ECs. Don't look to the US quite yet.
