Hey guys, So I did post earlier regarding my stats for school and all...but I am just so stressed out while studying for mcats on what to do... I talked to the premed commmitte in my school today regarding MCATs. I am real chill with them since I work with them this summer they basically said I would need a 3.6 and like a 32+ to be in good standing for med school. They think that I should possibly think about taking a year off and getting a better gpa. What you guys all think I hope to have about a 3.6-3.65 gpa by end of junior year so thats not a problem... next is mcats we will see how that goes ... thing is I am engineering major so not science would that put me at a disadvantage? Also my science gpa may only be around 3.4 as compared to my nonscience cum gpa. I am really considering taking a year off but I really don't want to and if it comes to down to DO or take a year off, I'd rather take the year off. I do not understand why I am so against taking a year off I mean technically it wouldnt matter age wise because I am like 8months-1year younger then all my friends right now so I mean I would still be 21 when I graduate my college (currently going to be a junior, just turn 20 now)... Not sure what to do. Any advice or just let it play out for next two semesters and see where I am at? I have great EC's. 150+ hours volunteering at hospital, 25+ hours of shadowing, positions for 2 years in 3 organizations, research (1 year two diff. research advisers, might continue research next year but I am not big on research).
