Here is my dilemma. My first experience at the four year school I was attending resulted in a very, very low GPA. I had a friend commit suicide several days before finals, so I blew those tests. I went through a big depression the following semester and blew those grades as well. After leaving school, I took several years off to reconsider my options. I have now been back in school for the past two years. All of my grades have been A-B. The problem is my cummulative GPA is still below 3.0. I feel like I am not going to be competitive enough to admissions committees to get an interview, even with a stellar MCAT score. What can I do do promote myself to the fullest? The albatross that hangs around my neck is really starting to weigh me down. I have had an awesome academic record since returning to school, including med prereqs, but with the bad grades on my transcript, the pre-med advisory committee thinks I don't have a good shot at getting in. I really want to prove to these people that I am capable of success, but am starting to lose faith. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
