Hello,

I'm currently a junior - just finished my first semester. I'm majoring in Biomedical Engineering. I have a 3.40 gpa. I've researched in a lab for 2+ years and I have have a publication. I'm currently the president of two organizations. I haven't taken my mcats yet..but what are my chances of getting in? I want to apply during the summer.

The mean GPA for students accepted to medical schools is about 3.65. In the absence of a known MCAT score it's hard to judge whether you have a chance. I'd say if your GPA stays the same, you would need an MCAT of 33+. You also need clinical experience and altruistic service (volunteerism). The absence of these two things would endanger your application even if your GPA was 4.0, so you might want to get them started. It sounds like your research experience is above average and you have two leadership roles. Hopefully there are other Extracurriculars you can list for hobbies, sports, or involvement in the arts.

Yes - I do realize I'll need to have some volunteering experience. Does it make any difference that I'm majoring in engineering and not the sciences?
