    I graduate with my B.A. in Public Communication from DePaul University in 3 weeks. GPA should be around 3.0-3.1 (awful, I know).

    Trying to get myself into a post-bacc program (undergrad to raise my GPA). I have no doubt that I can do well in the program, I just have to get in first!

    My GPA trend has been upward. I brought it from a 2.6 to a 3.0.

    I'm a licensed EMT-B, but have yet to work as one. Hopefully soon.

    Have some volunteering hours, but not a ton. No shadowing yet. Plan on doing both of those heavier starting this summer.

    I'd like to get into research somehow but given I'm not a science major, it's proving quite difficult.

    Let's say I walk away with a 3.0, do well (3.6 or higher in post-bacc) and do all my extras. What do we think?

    What would I have to pull on the MCAT to make me competitive? Or, is there anything else I should be looking at/looking into?

    I've been focusing more on post-bacc schools than med schools, but I live in Chicago and would love to stay here for school if possible. Loyola, Rush, UIC maybe?

    I know it's a lot of hypotheticals, but if I can get an idea now then I can prepare myself better.

    Thanks in advance!
