    :confused: Yea, I am not really clear about the OP's post.

    OP: Did you or did you not take the MCAT yet? Also, are "field activities" clinical experience? We need more information before we can answer your question. If you didn't take the MCAT yet, then it is really hard to answer your question since a lot will depend on your score. Good luck!:luck:

    Grammar is ok, punctuation is poor and details are scant.

    wow for a second i thought i clicked into the pre-allo:rolleyes:
    what is happening with the freindliness and maturity on our forum lately:eek: :confused:

    to the OP: it is hard to tell without your MCAT score...but even with it we are still not adcoms to assess your chances for getting into med school. The one and only (unfortunately) way to find out is to apply.

    Well, OP, everything looks okay in terms of your GPA and your EC's. What I am concerned about is your practice MCAT scores. They are on the low side of the average for a matriculant, especially for a school like CCOM. I'd actually recommend not taking the actual MCAT in May and taking the time to average higher on your practice MCAT before pulling the trigger. In fact, try to get your practice MCAT to average at least around 28. This will provide you with the greatest options and chances for when you apply. Find out your MCAT pathology and solve the issue. Since you are on the lower side, it's quite possible to see large improvements with intelligent and directed effort. Do what you have to do.

    Good luck.
