    I've never understood going the MERP route. Wouldn't it be easier to improve your stats at a university in the US?

    With a 2.65 and 22 MCAT, what leads you to believe you could handle the cirriculum of medical school?

    If you take classes at a university in the US, you may still not get in. If you pass MERP, I believe you have guaranteed acceptance.

    If you have a 2.6 and 22, either A) you simply dont have the raw brain power to complete med school or B) you partied a little too hard as an undergrad, but, if given the chance (merp) you can prove you can do it

    Sure, Merp is another (im guessing) 15k, but it sure as hell beats not being a doc at all...

    I Have a 2.7 Science/Major GPA right now. I'm pretty confidenet I can get it to a 2.9 . I have one more quarter for my junior year and my whole senior year to fix my GPA. I am taking MCAT classes right. With my GPA, and normal ECR stuff, what MCAT score should I aim for to get into AUC.

    My first two years my GPA iwas 2.55 and this past year, I maintained a 3.0. Yea, I slacked of, but hoping that improvement idea will help me get in..

    A 2.55 over two years corrected to 2.9 does show good improvement. Aim for high 20's.

    Regardless of GPA, you probably should shoot for 30+ anyways.
