what do you guys think my chances would be if I had to apply for a third time. I keep telling my parents that if i'm not accepted, i wouldn't start right away at a carribbean, but that i would apply again (and in their minds "lose" another year of my life). during this year off I would teach highschool biology. i think it would be an interesting experience and i could try to play a role in shaping the futures of these kids. that would be awesome, i think. but applying a third time my MOM says would decrease my chances even more. what do you think. here's how it would be UGrad 3.45 (with horrible senior year grades--ultimate disaster in AdComs minds) Grad grades in very challenging coarsework completeing 36 credits in one year, finishing with a 3.8 gpa (that's like twice as fast as it would normally take to finish those credits with a typical graduate coarseload--and with a very good gpa) 34 mcat i keep telling them that the 3.8 (a student who's coming into medschool with an MS is a luxury too i suppose--for most schools) and 34 would be good enough to get me into some top 20s. but they don't even think i'd get in anywhere. i figure by that time, i'd have demonstrated that my senior year was a fluke and i'm an excellent student, and my grad grades and mcat and 3rd time applying (persistence or insanity?) would be impressive. but what do you think?? i might show this to my parents, so they can see how CRAZY they are (or maybe i'm the one who's wrong).
