Hey Everyone,

I'm currently a junior Biology major, and have ~3.0 sGPA and a 3.14 cGPA. I took the MCAT over the summer and got a 37 (13 p.s., 12 v.s., 12 b.s.). I'm doing pretty well this semester...hopefully going to pull a 3.8 or so...but even if i do that and get a rly good GPA next semester, my overal gpas will probably only be about a 3.2 sGPA and a 3.4 cGPA. Should I be looking into a SMP or just some post-bacc work or should I have an ok chance at a MD with what I have? As far as ECs and LoRs go...they are very strong. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

You should be fine, just apply broad and explain your grades. Unless you're downward trending hard gpa wise I think you have a good chance. You could always apply after senior year and just take a year off to apply/live/volunteer. Good luck
