its possible but with more and more applicants to sgu, the cut off marks might have also gone up to around a high 20 MCAT and close to 3.0 GPA
you stats are right on the avg i would think for sgu
Your extracurriculars aren't overly-amazing either. Many applicants have similar experiences.
What will most probably happen, in my opinion, is that SGU will ask you to retake the MCAT. If you're OK with entering in the January '08 class, then I would recommend that you sign up for the MCAT ASAP and study your butt off in the meantime. This not only shows intitiative, but hopefully strengthens your application. If you can pull a score that's 30 or higher, you stand a good/decent chance of getting in.
Since your GPA is on the low side and MCAT about average, they may offer you an alternate track, such as MPH or FOM. Then you'd have to decide whether you would want to do such a program, but no need to get ahead of yourself, may as well apply first and see what they say.
If you retook the MCAT that would take time as well, so keep all your options open.
Good luck buddy. I'm sure you have a strong chance. I have a 3.2 GPA and 27s mcat and i got in.
Silly question but...St. George's calculates GPA on a 4 point scale, right? (Stupid I know, but knowing me, I'd assume and be wrong)
how about applying with 2.6 science/3.04 overall from top 10 (usually ranked 4-6) undergrad, and 3.02 from top 15 law school.
40T on the MCAT last august.
thoughts? the split makes it hard to predict.
been doing cardiovascular research, but it has been a while since those really bad science grades.
I would think you would get an interview. Be prepared for questions about your low GPA.
