Med School Admission FAQs

The first approach, which is likely not practical for the majority of students, is to take additional classes or to repeat the MCAT to improve these numbers. If you have time to take courses at a community college, or another institution, this may be beneficial. In addition, if you are able to retake the MCAT and obtain a significantly higher score, this can drastically improve one's impression of your academic ability.

However, this strategy is unfortunately not practical for the majority of our applicants. Thus, the other recommended approach is to work with the application you have, and to highlight certain points. In particular, it is important to highlight an upward trend in GPA, specifically science GPA, if possible. It is also helpful to highlight other strengths of the application. For example if you have a low GPA, but a unique accomplishment, or life story, it is helpful to bring this to the forefront of the application, through your personal statement, LORs, activity description, etc. It is also helpful to have your letter writers (particularly your science LOR writers) vouch for your academic ability. This is where working with a consultant can be particularly helpful, to identify the areas of your application that can be highlighted best to offset the lower GPA or MCAT score.
