A bit on my GPA problem here, and I'd appreciate any help on that thread. But I'd also like to know what else I need to do to get into a MD program. I obviously need to bust my ass for an MCAT and aim for a 32+, but other than that, since I am a non-trad, my clinical experiences aren't great. Right now, I am volunteering at an inpatient oncology floor for 4 hours/week for a semester. Next term, I plan to do 4 hours/week in the ER. I also plan to do some shadowing, and continue with some more clinical experiences next year (more volunteering). I was a part of a few clubs in college, but nothing major. I am also currently doing a research project where I hope to be part of a publication (though low down on the list of authors). I am wondering what I need to do to make up for my earlier problems with grades.
