Odds with this and for fall 2010?

Postby emmersonian » Fri Oct 23, 2009 1:37 am

I have a ~3.0 science GPA, around 3.6 overall and a 29Q MCAT score. I was wondering what my odds are and if I should still apply for the class of fall 2010? Any help would be appreciated.

DO very good
MD not so good the science is on the low side but low tier is ok I think?

Rest of the app
Volunteering
Patient experience
are the two important facts as well

Yes I see... the over all GPA is very good the science and the MCAT are low

so I see that too, if the rest of the app has something to it though I stick with a decent chance. :mrgreen:
