What happened to Pre-Med???? Did the 3.09 hold you back? I would try and kill the MCAT.
I actually got a 37 (98th percentile) on the MCAT. I know its a stupid financial decision but I would rather be a lawyer. I drudged through it in UG (hence the GPA) but I just don't like science.
What is the med school view towards splitters? I'm just curious because I started out pre-med (but with my gpa hovering around 3.3-3.5 I figured I wasn't competitive for med school).
3.3-3.5. would be fine with 32+ I'd think. Your Science GPA is more important than overall GPA. I would have had to retake some classes, which I was prepared and enrolled to do when I decided to pursue law.
The thing about med schools is, while they are ranked, residencies are based on to the same boards that are given to anyone so prestige isn't as important so decent splitters will be fine going to their state U.
