Hey Guys,

I know this may be a recurring topic but I couldn't find any help in regards to my particular situation. I am going to be applying next cycle but my cGPA is 3.75 whereas my sGPA is a 3.5. My MCAT was pretty good also, in that I got a 518. I wonder if the large discrepancy in my science GPA will be an issue in my application? I ended up doing significantly poorly in 2 upper division CHEM classes so it impacted my sGPA a lot.

What do you guys think? Will this impact my chance at many schools especially those in New York?

Quit fussing, you're fine. The median sGPA for acceptees is 3.5. You're still competitive with a good list.
