What are my chances? Med school admission
Hello, I am a 24 y/o hispanic female who is only been in the states for 8 years. I got my bachelors in psychology about a year and a half ago. I graduated with honors and with a very decent GPA then I started to take pre med requirement courses and my GPA dropped down to a 3.54 which from what I have heard is not great for med school. My science GPA is even worse 3.1.
I worked full time throughout all my undergrad and I continue to do so. I volunteered as a research assistant for a year at the anxiety and phobia program at the university I attend and by the time I apply for medical school I am going to have worked with psychiatric patients for two years which I would think is better than shadowing a doctor. I want to become a psychiatrist but I am getting a little nervous about my GPA and my chances to get into medical school. I have mentioned what I have heard is relevant for medical school admission; ethnicity, gpa, and extracurriculars. I did not include MCAT scores because I have not taken it yet. What are my chances to get accepted? What schools should I be aiming to when the time to apply comes (I live in FL)?
Thanks a lot.
