OK, I have a pretty large list of schools that I want to apply to and I'm trying to narrow it down.
Does anyone know which schools REALLY look at a positive GPA slope not just cumulative? Every recruiter i've talked too say they do, but I'm looking for people that are not bias.

I know about all the other "whole applicant" things. Please don't think this is a "Will I be able to make it into med school thread" my Karma cannot stand the beat down

how many schools? which ones? what are your #s? there is no one answer to your questions so we need some specifics.

You have a slightly below average cum. for most schools which is not bad at all, especially with the upward trend. I would say if your MCAT is good you can apply to some elite schools and see what pans out, and selectively pick "lower tier" schools in areas you wouldnt mind attending. Its too hard to predict though.
