    Are the grades at SGU on a 4.0 scale? What would my med school GPA have to be in order to be competitive for either a surgery or anesthiology residency?

    yes it is on a 4.0 scale. but many if not most US med schools dont use letter grades. they simply use honors, high pass, pass, fail instead of the A,B,C,F

    as far as residency, USMLE step 1 score is what matters most and your 3rd/4th yr rotation grades, basic science yrs/grades are not that much of a factor

    yep, and from what I heard there's a shortage of anesthesia residents so it wouldn't be that hard to get.
