Declining sGPA trend and poor choice making and 2x MCAT taker (although with significant improvement.)Hello everyone! I am applying this current cycle and quite scared about my chances. I was wondering if anyone could potentially offer any insight. Due to the large discrepancy between my Science GPA and Cumulative GPA I am not sure if I should even bother applying to MD schools.
Brief Background: I have done well on all of my prerequistes for medical school, obtaining grades that range from A-/A for the majority of the courses. The large decline in my science GPA comes from upper-division science courses that I took while in my last year and half of college. I had significant familial issues arise which included the deterioration of a parent's health in which I had to help take care of them. This resulted in me commuting between home and school which caused alot of psychological stress. This is not an excuse for my poor grades; yet it provides insight onto how I coped with the issues. My PS indicates this as well as growth from my experience and how I have managed to deal with these issues significantly better so that issues like this do not transpire again.
I apologize if this is a lot to read but I hope you guys can provide me with the best of luck and any schools that would be willing to give me a shot!
