    Residency

    Advertisements



    When we apply for residency, do the schools look at the MCAt score and undergraduate GPA? If yes, does the MCAT really hurts getting the good residency?

    no

    MCAT and undergrad GPA have nothing to do with getting residency.

    They look at your USMLE scores, your Med school GPA, any research , letters of recomendation from Clinical rotattions etc.
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!

    Hello do they really look at your med school GPA I was told that the only thing that was shown was pass/ fail they were not allowed to show your GPA from basic sciences.
