    I am a California resident, with an MCAT score of 7-V 10-P 11-B O-W, undergrad gpa of just a bit above 3.0 (science gpa is around the same) from UCLA. 3.6 grad school gpa from Boston University Medical School Master's program. I have lots of great letter's of rec. and lots of volunteer experience.
    What are my chances for matriculation at any US allopathic school.

    If you are a traditional applicant and there isn't anything negative standing out in your educational background (such as having a C or F in some class and having had to retake it), then your chances are average.

    If you have some academic blemish (no matter how small) and are non traditional (such as a career changer, or older than 33), your chances become much slimmer.

    For CA your numbers are very weak, but I am sure you are aware of that. Pick your schools carefully, keeping in mind the above caveat, and you should be able to land a few interviews.

    Good luck!

    TO UHS2002,

    hi, why does non-traditional students of getting acceptance compare to rest of the traditional students?

    also, do they weigh master program courses more than post-bac or are they the same??

    thanks
