Hi everyone!
I plan on taking the Mcat in January 2014 and would just like to have your opinion on my app so far!
Bachelor of science in neuroscience UCLA, sGPA 3.3, oGPA:3.4
Worked in a flow cytometry lab, volunteered for a year in the ucla hospital in NICU, MICU and liver transplant department, volunteered in a neuroscience research lab on cocaine addiction for about a year and currently volunteering in another research lab (both at ucla) focusing on methamphetamine addiction.
Planning on shadowing a doctor and becoming a medical scribe after I take the Mcat until I start med school.

I know the decision depends on the Mcat score, so what score would I have to get to be competitive?
Thanks for the infos and help and good luck to everyone!

You'll need to score >30 to competitive, with 10/10/10 minimums. Your GS are well be lower than avg at all MD schools, so aim only for low-tier schools and all new schools.

Your chances are better at DO programs. Aim for high 20s and you're in.
