DO schools and MD schools which reward reinvention will look at you if you get a respectable MCAT, so if you are committed to medicine the work involved in the MCAT should be worth it to you.

I've posted in this thread before and I would like to ask the same question-what are my chances? My undergraduate degree is in Management Consulting from Notre Dame, in which I finished with a 2.8 GPA. I simply wasn't focused in school. Several life events made me change my career path to one in medicine instead of corporate. I went onto the University of Minnesota and received a Masters in Kinesiology with a 3.7 GPA. I just completed a post-bacc at Charles R. Drew University, where my post-bacc science GPA is 3.92. My AMCAS overall GPA is now a 3.11 and my non-science GPA is 2.9. I am also an URM female.

Here are some of my extracurricular stats:
-1 year of research experience with 3 publications
-100 hours of volunteering (still continuing with this, will be at 230 by the time I apply; also plan on shadowing physicians)
-80 hours of tutoring math and Spanish
-Currently working at a non-profit that connects cancer patients to clinical trials

I plan on taking the MCAT in Spring 2018. Do I have a chance at getting into medical school? I am worried that I won't make it past the initial screenings. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
A strong MCAT and you've got a shot. Be open to DO programs too though.

If you obtain a MCAT of 508 or higher your chances for a MD acceptance are 75%. Below 500 and your chances for MD are minimal. Post your score here when available
