I just got a sinking feeling. I read a post about someone who pre-matched. The person listed their USMLE scores and their UNDERGRAD GPA.
Are the decison makers for residency programs interested in applicants UNDERGRAD GPAs? If so, I'm probably screwed. Mine is barely 3.0. I was counting on doing well in med school and the USMLE to pave the way. I also have age working against me so I don't need any additional negatives like a low GPA from my undergrad days. I thought that once I got into med school that would not be a part of my background for consideration for residency.
If an applicant's GPA is low (around 3.0), how much of a deal breaker is that?
Anybody out there who can address this?
