GPA - undergrad GPA 2.9
worked a couple years after undergrad (non medical), then started taking pre reqs at a CC

EC's since going back to school
-1 yr hospital volunteering
-worked part time (non medical)
How does this look?
Please advice on how can I improve? I know there is not too much time left before apps will be submitted but at least I can start and mention in the app if not submitted yet, mention it in secondaries and interviews if I get them. There is still some time.
I am willing to do what it takes to help my chances. I really want to start med school in 2007. Thanks for your help.
Cum GPA is 3.2mj1878 said:You might have a hard time with a cumulative of only 2.9...
Some schools won't even send you a secondary without a cum. of at least 3.0...All the same, you MCAT isn't terrible, so you might get lucky.
your best bet is to throw in a couple of DO applications as well as several MD applications.bullseye99 said:Cum GPA is 3.2
I looked at http://www.medschoolready.com/app/medstatistics.asp
There is only one school with the MCAT average higher than mine and that is WesternUCOMP with 28. So I was thinking I maybe OK as far as the MCAT? The stats are from 2004. Are they accurate?
