    This is kind of a strange topic.

    I spoke to 2 med students at UCSD. One say 3.4 the other said 3.8, so who knows? haha
     
  4. 3.8 as the minimum? Ya right! :laugh:

    med schools count CGPA and they count all years...i would say a realistic min GPA from someone straight out of college and not a URM would be 3.25+ but youd need a 30+ MCAT i would imagine.

    Glad to see you are back to your token advice. Maybe add that to your sig to save the typing and just include an arrow.

    They look at BCMP and Cumulative. There is no "minimum" GPA. I am under the impression that schools look at your performance up to the date of application.

    If you are a senior applying, then your grades for fourth year are obviously not in your app. So, they would be looking at the last 3 years.

    ROFL... yeah, but admit it - the advice to buy it, read it, know it would save a lot of these straight forward questions.
