    yes, very much so as long as you have a reasonable explanation for the low gpa, which you should if you have a high MCAT.

    depends on how high an MCAT and how low a GPA.

    Mid 30's MCAT are very few and far between. Far more people say they've got mid 30's score than actually have it. Not that they don't exist, but they're rare. These are often the same people who claim to have gotten into multiple US schools, but came to AUC for the sights.
