    Hi Jesse. Your gpa is on par with the average acceptance levels in some of the midwest md schools. The question however is your mcat. Are you considering Xavier for the lack of mcat requirement? One school in the midwest that I went to for undergrad openly stipulated that their acceptance was contingent upon 50% weighted for gpa and 50% weighted for mcat.
    While I applaud your dedication to your testimony and doing a 2 year mission, the trend is to put more importance on factors that lean towards future likelihood of success on licensing exams (Step 1, Step 2 CS and CK, Step 3, and Board licensure in a primary field). I'm assuming you're mormon due to my ignorance of any other faith having 2 year missions. If this is the case, I too wish BYU had a med school...perhaps Utah U. might favorably look upon your missionwork.
    There are other, more pressing concerns when it comes to applying to this or any other school for that matter. But the frankness of that discussion would likely be better served in a private chat.

    I can see the confusion. My undergrad school also had a med school. The professors teach both levels and serve on multiple committees. Over time, one might glean information about the med school from the profs.

    Certainly your gpa will be a determining factor. But in some schools, your volunteer and mission work may tip the balance. That's all I was alluding to. Xavier's process for admission is the same as everywhere else in that you apply, you interview, and then you either are accepted or not.
    Perhaps you could clarify for other Xavier students what exactly you mean. Obviously my perspective is of little use to you, so maybe they could answer you better...or better still, the admissions department is generally rather interested in answering questions Tel: 877-5-XAVIER (Toll Free)
    Tel: 866-XUSOM-01 (Toll Free). Good luck in your pursuits.
