Trying to make decisions about whether it would be worth it to still apply to medical school in the cycle or wait
I am currently a junior majoring in Neuroscience and History with a minor in Chemistry and possible Religious Studies Minor.
My GPA through my university is a 3.56
Going by AMCAS GPA policies:
My BCPM GPA is a 3.24
My All Other GPA is a 3.7
My Running Overall GPA is 3.43
I have yet to take the MCAT, but I am still planning to do that in early May 2019.
I am currently trying to decide if I have a chance at getting into medical school in the next cycle or if I should wait and do a post-bacc year-long program and apply in 2020.
I am attempting to get into a clinical research lab right now and waiting to hear back on a clinical volunteer program I've applied to where I sit and comfort people who are close to dying and do not want to die alone.
I have been extremely active in my service fraternity and have an excess of volunteer hours through them.
I am working on gaining shadowing hours.
I currently attend an OOS school for undergrad and would like to stay up north for medical school.
I would like to know if it is worth it for me to even consider applying next cycle for medical school? Like do people get into medical school with GPA's like mine? Also any alternative suggestions for how to make myself a better applicant especially if you believe I should wait a year or two?
