    Alumni Recommendation???

    Advertisements



    Hey guys, im new to this forum, so here it goes.....i have a 2.8 gpa, im taking the mcat in april, and i have a ton of clinical experience and letters of recommendation. One of my letters of recommendation is from an anesthesiologist who graduated from AUC . Do you think that having an alumni recommend me will help my chances considering my overal gpa isnt that great?

    OOOOHHHHHHHH! That gives me an idea for a company....

    Let's round out alumn/almost done med students from the big 3/4 and start a LOR writing company.
