Hello guys,

I just want to get an idea of what my chances may be at a Medical school. My bachelor's degree is not in science. I have a B.A. in Political Sciences/International Relations.

So this is what I have:

-sGPA 3.21, cGPA 3.50, non-sGPA 3.57; MCAT 25 (I'll be retaking the MCAT)
-I have great LOR from 1 MD, 2 science professors, 2 non-science professors, and the coordinator of the program I am currently volunteering.
-I have done volunteering at a hospital for 200+ hours.
-Shadowed MD in the summer (2 months)
-Involved in the community.
-Involved in many EC's as undergrad, including being part of the leadership in 2 student organizations.

So please, every advise is welcome and options as to where I could apply as well.


Thanks!

PS: Oh I don't know if this could be relevant, but I'm from Puerto Rico and the top Med School (UPR) has an average MCAT score of 24... and the other one (PSM) requires a minimum GPA of 2.7 on a four-point scale (as calculated by AMCAS) their average is 3.5. and minimum science GPA of 2.7 on a four-point scale (as calculated by AMCAS). Minimum MCAT score is 19 their average score is 21.
