Sorry about this post ahead of time, because I do realize there are many of them out there. I did subpar my first two years of college due to family issues, no motivation (i changed majors 2 times and interned in respective fields, one of them being electrical engineering). However, since then, I've been getting straight A's - A+'s. Currently my GPA is 3.45, but by the end of this quarter hopefully i can get it up to 3.5. My mcat is a 36S. My EC's are average (volunteering at a hospital, research) , and I am from california. My (estimated) BCPM gpa is around 3.75 - 3.8. I know my cumulative GPA of around 3.5 is going to be a little bit on the low side, but will my upward trend/BCPM/MCAT score help overcome this enough to apply and hopefully get interviews at CA schools? What "levels" of OOS schools should I be looking to apply to?
