Hi all. I know these are always posted but I really want to know how to succeed. I will be a Junior in college next yr. Right now my GPA is at about 3.5 (I will for sure get it up to at least a 3.6). I have not taken MCATs yet. I have taken Biology 2 (got a B) but not Bio 1 yet. I took Physics 1 (calculus based, which is higher than required for med school and got a B+) and Physics 2 (calculus based and really hard, got a C+). I am a Comp Sci major right now and we have the most required units out of all other majors at my school. This limits my time to do the premed classes (hence the reason for the low grades in the ones I've taken). I have a few questions that I would like to have answered: 1) Because of my limited time, I plan on doing a Post Bacc premed program at one of the state schools nearby (such as SFSU) so that I can do my premed requirements there. Do med schools look down on this? Will it prolong my entrance to medical school for a few years (since I have to take those classes, then spend time studying for the MCATs, then wait a yr after that)? 2) What MCAT score should I be shooting at to get into a CA school? Obviously I will be trying to get the best score possible, but I do sort of need a reality check. 3) Do you think I need to retake the 3 premed classes I have already taken? Thanks for any answers you can give me. I'm hoping people who were in similar situations or knew people in similar situations will answer the most, but I am open to everyone. Thanks a lot! Congrats all those who got into med school! Good luck.
