Hey guys, I am struggling to make a proper decision in regards to my career path. I will be a fourth year in the fall, and in order to apply this cycle I need to take my MCAT soon and apply (probably late, which will make my chances much slimmer). I was recently diagnosed with ADHD, and up until I was medicated, I was receiving C/C+'s in my BCPMs. (Bio 1/2, Chem 2, Physics 1). The only classes I did decent in were Biochem and Physics 2 with B's because I was medicated at that point. My overall science GPA is about 3.0 but I hope to raise that to about 3.1 by the end of senior year. My overall GPA should be about 3.1-3.2 by the end of senior year also. I am involved on campus, volunteer and am currently doing research also. I haven't taken my MCAT yet though. I know my GPA is on the low end and I feel as though I was at an unfair disadvantage because I was not medicated as an underclassmen which affected my success in those classes but I'm not sure if medical schools would understand this. I do not want to take out more loans for a Master's Program or Post-Bac, but I know I need to do something about my GPA. I am banking on other factors like MCAT and EC's so my GPA can be overlooked but I am not sure anymore because the MCAT is difficult as is. I was even considering the Dental route since the requirements are less extreme compared to Med. Even though I rather be a physician, I am already in debt as an undergraduate and have to start thinking about a more logically fiscal route (reason I have held off on taking the MCAT) I know there are schools that say the minimum GPA to apply is a 3.0 but the chances of acceptance are very slim--should I take the chance and apply anyway or should I willingly take a year off--and if I take a year off what should I be doing to increase my chances of being a competitive applicant?
