    Depends on your step1 score. You can have a crappy gpa (I had a 2.5) and rock step1 (which i did) and nobody will question your basic science knowledge. The only people who took note of my grades during interviews were actually quite impressed that I was able to do so well on step1 with such crappy basic sci grades (yes they even used the word crappy).

    basic sci

    short asnwer: slim to none. If you have some weaknesses you might be asked at interview, but it didnt keep you from an interview then did it? basic sci grades dont count for much at all. however your step 1 does count. So for that reason and for the fact that basic sci do come into play as a doctor, you should learn well. if that doesnt necessarily translate into the best ** gpa, no worries.
