Hello,

I am a resident of Wisconsin and completed a hard undergrad major with a 3.4 gpa. I just got my MCAT score back which was a 511. Considering that I am Hispanic, do you think I have a shot at getting into UW-Madison School of Public Health?

This is a forum of pre-meds, so we can't help you here for an MPH.

Do you mean their medical school, which is UW Madison School of Medicine and Public Health? If so, your GPA is below their average, and your MCAT is slightly below their average, but being a Wisconsin resident and possible URM will help. It will come down to your extra-currricular activities and ability to write.

Otherwise, @Goro is correct, we will not know about your chances for an MPH.

What community do you represent? And please don't say Kenosha.

Not all Hispanics are URM, and evidence of service to your community is a major deal.

I thought you were assuming I grew up in a predominantly hispanic community, and somehow "represented" them.
