I can't recommend retaking the MCAT because you've hit your plateau.Hello,
I am writing this email as I am making a decision on my options and chances.
I am a Canadian applicant and have never applied to US schools before.
I have finished my undergrad and have a relatively competitive cGPA: 3.86
Unfortunately, I have written MCAT 3 times already and have not got satisfactory results:
First MCAT(CP,CARS,BB,PS): 124,128,126,126 T: 504
Second MCAT: 128,125,129,125 T: 507
3rd MCAT: 127,124,130,128 T: 509
My ECs are not bad at all. I guess average I would say. Have long term involvement. Clinical and volunteer involvements. unique experiences and also research and I am going to get a Co-authorship this year.
My question is do I even have a shot if I apply to US MD on the first day of the new cycle.
If I write MCAT again and do better especially in CARS and get 115+ is that going to help.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback. Really appreciate your help.
And due to this, and being a 3x taker, and the fact that internationals need to be superstars, MD is off the table.
You're fine for those DO schools that accept Canadians, especially MSUCOM and UNECOM
