    Hi, I'm really nervous about this and I would really appreciate your advice.
    I am applying this year and I would like to know how competitive my application is and what range of schools I should be aiming for.

    -------------------------------------------------------------
    I'm a student who recently completed masters of science in biology with a 3.9 in 2008. With:

    Undergraduate GPA 2.62, BCPM GPA 2.9 in 2006 in an engineering school with biology degree(initially an engineering major, switched second year)

    MCAT 12 Phys, 11 Biol, 9 Verbal = 32 M; Aug. 2005

    Clinical experience
    5 months of volunteering at a local ER and internal medicine
    6 months of rounding with general surgery team at a local medical school's hospital
    15 months of shadowing at pathology service
    1 month in cardiology

    Publications
    secondary author in an article in Journal of American College of surgeons
    secondary author in an article in annals of surgery
    (hopefully 2 pathology journal articles by the end of the year)

    Presentations
    2 posters for United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology Annual Meeting (www.uscap.org)

    Other activities
    6 months microbiology research during undergraduate
    2 years of part time retail job(during college years, which explains my low gpa) and another job for 5 months
    1 month participating in M1 PBL class at a local medical school
    Publication of a religious book currently sold in bookstores
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm planning on taking another MCAT this coming August but I would also like to know how well I could do without MCAT.

    Thank you for your feedback!
