how come your LORS are not spectacular? why did you ask those people for them?Originally posted by Oallostavros
I'm looking at a 3.3 GPA from Case Western Reserve University and a 31 MCAT, with good ECs, but not so spectacular letters of recommendation. Got any suggestions for schools?
I just assume that with only a 3.3, they can't be that good. I mean, they know me well and all, but I can see them saying much about someone with a 3.3.Originally posted by oldman

One would hope that they'd be so curious about the discrepancy that they'd invite you for an interview.Originally posted by deejayshakur
what about a 3.3 and say, oh, a 40 mcat? just wanna know your thoughts... what would adcoms think about the mcat/gpa discrepancy?
I don't know about his background, but those stats are good enough for the Penns and Hopkins if he's a minority and if his recs aren't bad....Originally posted by T.A.M
Your numbers place you slightly below the middle of the pack, but they are good enough for many MD and DO schools but not the Harvards, Penns and Johns Hopkins of the medical world.
