I am in the process of applying for medical schools and I am having trouble figuring out what schools to apply too. My MCAT score isn't as strong as my GPA and most schools I'm looking at have a GPA average around the same as mine or bellow but a higher MCAT average. I have a lot of clinical and volunteer experience interning at a medical nonprofit. DO you think it would be unrealistic to have UCLA and UCSF as my top choices?

I think you have a shot at both ucla and ucsf assuming it's a balanced 32.
