    Wow!
    How did you manage to get a pretty decent MCAT?
    You must have a very compelling story!

    I studied really hard for the mcats because i knew my sgpa is really weak (sgpa2.2). Clearly, I know my material based on my mcat score but I am still worried if I would get accepted because overall my cgpa is 2.6. So I was wondering even though I have a 30Q on my mcat would AUC even consider me?

    I think you would have a shot at the Jan/may classes. I had a similarly low gpa 2.7 cgpa, 2.6 sgpa, 35o mcat. I did have to phone interview however.

    I still want to repeat few courses so I have a REALLY good chance of getting in. Does AUC penalize you if courses are repeated? I know SABA likes to see improvement and therefore they wouldn’t mind if you repeat a course, as long as you get a really high mark in the repeated course. How about AUC?

    Hello, I was looking for some opinions on what my chances are for acceptance:

    uGPA: 3.05 at University of Michigan
    Grad GPA: 3.90 at Wayne State University's Basic Medical Sciences Master's Program
    MCAT: 31Q

    ECs:

    • Psychiatry ER intern for one summer (60 hrs)
    • MCAT verbal instructor for TPR for almost 2 years now
    • MCAT verbal development consultant for TPR for 1 year
    • Surgical mission trip to Honduras (1 week last April, and going again in Oct; 50 hrs)
    • Radiation oncology research assistant with submission to present at conference in the winter (300+ hrs)
    • Shadowing (40 hrs, and will be shadowing more this summer)
    • Founding president of a local sorority
    • Freelance web designer
    • I also start training for a hospice volunteer position next week

    LORs: 2 science profs, 1 non-science prof, 1 from the MD in charge of my research project, and one from a DO from the Honduras trip

    Any comments would be appreciated, thank you!

    you should have no problem getting accepted to any caribbean school. also make sure you apply to the US schools, because you may even be able to get accepted there.
