What are the chances of an MD school from a top SMP with a GPA of 3.5-3.6? For a non-traditional applicant without an undergrad major in biomedical sciences. I know higher is expected and in retrospect, I probably should have done a regular physiology master's since I did not have a very solid foundation in science prior to the program and worked my butt off for that GPA. Is there a way I can express in my application to adcoms that the GPA was attained with a basic understanding of biomedical sciences and having that knowledge will only help me improve for the future? Also because I have a strong upwards trend.
