Sorry if this is a repeated post or a stupid question but I am new here and honestly clueless.
I just took my MCAT and voided it because I felt like I did really poorly on it (pressure of the test got to me.)
Anyways, my family moves a lot and I have 4 total transcripts (transferred 3 seperate times). My cumulative GPA is 3.44, science GPA 3.5, and there probably staying there considering I have 4 classes until graduation. I have been working full-time as a dealership car detailer (obviously not a medical job) since freshman year with a decent amount of volunteering and internships.
I have no idea what MCAT score I need to get me into a MD school, or if an MD school is even possible for me.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks everyone

This table is a good way to get an idea of what score you should be shooting for depending on your GPA.

AAMC also provides more data that is more specific to your gender and/or ethnicity which would be good to look at as well.

Keep in mind that this data is derived from MD schools only and not DO.

As high as possible! Not because you need it as high as possible - as referenced by the table above - but rather a good MCAT makes everything else fade in importance. Shoot for the 528 and if you land at a 510, or even a 505, you'll eventually get in to medical school somewhere.
