Hello SDN, I had another question regarding my medical school application. During my freshman and sophomore undergraduate years I maintained a 3.8-3.9 GPA. During my junior and senior years, my average GPA dropped to around 3.3-3.5 but my total GPA right now as a graduating senior is 3.68. I had some family problems during these 2 years that I feel made my life more difficult and affected my GPA. Should I address these in my medical school application (personal statement maybe?). I haven't yet because I didn't want to make excuses but I'm wondering if it's a good idea or not. I've had the mindset that I'd rather use my personal statement space to draw attention to other aspects of my life, but maybe that's worth rethinking. Please let me know. Thanks!
