    Requirements

    Advertisements



    Hey everyone,
    I had a couple of questions about applying....

    A bit of a background....

    I am registered to take the MCAT in September. I expect(crossing my fingers here, that I will do well on it... I've been scoring 33 - 35 on my practice tests)

    I have been out of school for a while, mostly working, and have a diploma of college studies from 6 years ago, (DEC in Quebec for any of you who are familiar with it) that is about 55 credits although it will most likely be counted as 30 credits and a GPA of about 2.4 and from January I have 15 credits in university studies as an independent student(Not registered in a degree program) with a GPA of 3.6 and I'll be taking another 15 credits in the fall

    So my Q's

    1. When is the best time to apply for January... should I wait until after my MCAT scores come out(mid-October) since my GPA is weak or should I apply ASAP?

    2. Would 1 LOR from work and 1 LOR from volunteering be sufficient? I don't really know of any advisory committees at my university and I wouldn't really feel comfortable approaching a teacher...

    3. Are there any specific things I should be focusing on to better myself as an applicant?

    Thanks for all your help everyone!

    Normally you would not need the MCAT but with your GPA that low they will probably require MCAT scores. You should apply after your MCAT scores to boost your application. Good Luck!
