TX schools seem to put a lot of emphasis on gpa.Thank you for the input. Will I just be screened out automatically?
It's my hope that adcoms will see that I have a 4.0 while taking difficult prereqs all at once, and while working. My undergrad GPA from nearly a decade ago is what is killing me - it's a 2.93. Since then, I've worked in a leadership position that far exceeds what typical pre-meds will have. My MCAT score also adds to my case that I belong in an MD program but I don't know how heavily it gets weighted compared to GPA.
As for specialty, it was part of the requested info on reddit where I copied my info from. I am not at all worried about specialties.
