I just had a quick question. I was wondering what my chances are of getting into med school. I've been told various things about GPA/MCAT scores and I'm not really sure what to gauge off of. For example, I am a D1 soccer player, been awarded 1st team all-academic, 2nd team All conference, I'm a junior, 3.6 GPA 3.5 ScienceGPA, I do plenty of volunteering/research and I work a lot with kids because I want to be a pediatrician. Let me know what you guys think. I still have another year of college left to bump up my GPA, if need be, and I am planning on taking the MCAT after college because I would like to take a year off. How do you think I'm looking so far?
Your application will depend on several important factors:
MCAT score ( how many times you took it)
Other activities like Playing Soccer
Your Personal Statement ( this describes who you are and what you want to do in life and why)
GPA is great
Your volunteering sounds good
