    Thank you.

    I guess I never even considered a US school because of the competition I am witnessing. If you think I have a chance at a US school, that is encouraging. Thank you for your input.

Currently my combined GPA is 2.9 (nearly 3 with the converted scale) and an MCAT score of 28. This final year is looking to be the best (knock on wood) and I am confident my total GPA will be over 3. My question is when I apply to AUC schools, does any one think I will get in with my 2.9 GPA and MCAT score or do I have to wait to graduate and reapply with my hopefully higher GPA. Is this even an issue given the application calender to AUC to hopefully start Sept. 09? Thanks a lot for replying!
    i got in today without an interview with a 3.15 overall gpa and a 27 s on the mcat. my application was complete mid september and i got in for the jan class so im sure you will get in with your similar stats.

    chances of AUC admission

    hi guys, i'm a senior at univ of illinois majoring in molecular cellular biology
    i have a GPA of 2.65 but not counting my horrific freshman year it would be around a 3. and my science gpa is about the same ~2.75.
    my MCAT score is a 31S (11 PS, 10 VR, 10 **).
    i can get a lot of LORs.
    i know my gpa is low but like i said i had one really bad year.

    so what do you think my chances are?

    your chances are strong. you have an excellent mcat and i'm sure that'll make up for your gpa.

    however, with that strong mcat, have you considered post bacc or a master's program then applying to a US med school? if you can do really well on your masters or post bacc, you can have a shot at a US med school instead of the caribbean med schools

    You have a good shot at AUC, but I disagree with FOID about the US. US schools look at your undergrad no matter what you do for post bacc and that undergrad GPA will almost certainly keep you out of any of them.

    i agree with you slevit. however, if the the user can get a really high GPA, the user might be able to show that he has an increasing trend. adcom can look for that as well.

    unfortunately most grad school programs require a 3.0 or above.
    my freshman year kind of doomed me ... (i got a 0.0 GPA) yet i worked hard to overcome that and at least have a gpa above 2.5
    i really hear a lot of good things about this school.
    another couple questions:
    how long does it take to render a decision??
    does it depend on what semester/terms i'm applying for?
    and are certain semesters/terms easier to apply to?

    thanks for the ridiculously quick replies

    w/o an mcat, it's hard to say. your gpa is low so you need a really good mcat so make up your low gpa.

    What range do you think my mcat needs to be in order to be accepted?
    also if my mcat is low, and i retake it january 25. how much will my first mcat impact the decision if my 2nd mcat is much better?
