    Hi guys, I need a bit of help deciding where to apply (or if I even can apply)

    My undergrad was at a relatively good liberal arts school. Freshman year was rocky with a 3.1, but my senior year I pulled a 4.0, to end with a cGPA of 3.5 with a double major in biology and religion.

    Varsity tennis team
    tennis coach for children
    Hospice volunteer x 1 year
    Research abroad for traditional medicine in Laos, Mongolia, and Ethiopia

    I took a two year gap with 2 years of full time scribing, part time research at the trauma center, volunteer as first grade literacy tutor.

    I am currently in a master's program at Johns Hopkins with a 3.9 GPA in the sciences; do you think this is enough to curb the undergrad? I am also currently doing research with neonatal institute and volunteering with a hospice.

    What should my MCAT be to at least be considered?

    Should be good. Depends on where you're looking to apply in terms of the MCAT. Aim for 32+

    Ideally 27+, but as high as possible. They are rapidly getting more competitive.
