3.6 BCPM 3.16 overall 35 MCAT 100+ hours shadowing 75+ hours volunteering in the ER 5 Int'l missions trips 2 years working in ER (non-clinical, but I get to see a lot of good stuff) 3 years of volunteer work in reptile research/surveys (not related to medicine, I know) Possibly some work in research before I apply (next year). I'm not looking to get into any top-tier schools. I'm actually not picky at all where I go as long as it's somewhere in the south-east. I'm just a little worried about my overall GPA. I had a 2.5 year stint at college right out of high school that I deeply regret, the result of which left me with a 2.06 GPA with 64 credit hours - no science classes. I worked (no college) for two years and then came back after I realized that I wanted to go into medicine. From the time I came back to school, I will have 6 semesters of between 3.7 - 4.0 GPA's. What do you think? I really don't want to wait another year to raise my GPA since I'm already in my late 20's. Should I give it a go with what I've got?
