    I agree with Jersey Girl, that in order to be competitive you have to have good GPA and MCAT scores. If not, you better have good reasons why the schools should accept you, and good reasons as to how you can keep up in medschool as well.

    One of the great aspects of Osteopathic Medschool is that they look at the whole person, i.e. experiences, community service, volunteering, genuine interest in medicine and healthcare and other extra-curriculars aside from your GPA and MCAT grades. If you hold it down with your extra-curricular stuff, and maintain good grades, you have a good shot. :D

    AACOMAS will count only the most recent grade in calculating your gpa.

    Taking it again will solidify any weaknesses and help with your MCAT.
