I have interviewed earlier in the cycle at my two dream schools (both are T5 caliber schools), neither of which I truly expected to get interviews from. According to MSAR, my gpa is between their 10th-25th percentile (>3.75), which is my primary worry. I think the rest of my application is relatively competitive there but my gpa is the worst section of my app (It has the traditional U shape). I had a semester of great grades this fall, however, this only raised my gpa by a couple hundredths. Is this remotely worth an update, along with some other clinical experiences? Both of these schools mentioned on interview days that they accept any and all updates, but I'm not exactly sure what that means. Thanks! @LizzyM @Goro
I would especially if this is the only part of your app that isn’t as good. It can’t hurt.
