    Hanstu,
    I wish I could help you but I am trying to figure out the same thing. Do you have volunteering and research?

    I agree with lsmith...probably not a great chance for the September class, but better for january or may. Your GPA is around average and your MCAT is below. Military experience may count for something, but if you don't have the grades or MCAT, not much else matters.

    i agree with lsmith. i think you'd have a better shot for jan or may. you're pretty much below average for sept.

    JC classes won't hurt you.

    you're right. i'm looking at the auc website now.

    Average Cumulative GPA: 3.2
    Average Science GPA: 3.1
    Average MCAT: 25
    These statistics are based on the 2008 incoming class.

    I don't remember the GPA, but the MCAT from the last August class was a 26. The 2008 incoming class includes all 3 semesters, 2 of which lower the average.

    Gator11, no research or done any significant volunteering work…just studying biochem takes up majority of your time. If I had the opportunity to do things over, I would definitely have major in biology haha. Guess I might have to hit up them exam krackers and retake the mcat for Jan class…thx for the help guys

    Exam krackers is great is great. You can also take a few science courses and make A's in them. You would be shocked what a difference 10 hrs of A's can make

    Quick question, will a high MCAT off set a low gpa? Do they have the law school mentality of the LSAT being heavily weighted over gpa?
