    In Need of Some Major Advice

    Take a look at each schools policy. As far as I know, U of A and U of C don't count your summer courses in your GPA. This can be an advantage if you want to get some harder courses out of the way.

    What to Do After Undergrad

    I see many premeds falling into the trap of trying to strategically improve their application. With admissions being a bit of black box its difficult to predict what you "need" to improve. Its more important to think about pursuing things that you are interested in and excited to see personal growth in. Choose the route thats right for you, rather than trying to fit it in the context of admissions.

    Help: withdrawal from class 4th year?

    I had a W in my 3rd year and applied at U of A. They did not ask me about it and it did not seem to affect my application.

    Give up on the dream?

    It's not impossible to get in with those stats. I had similar MCAT and GPA and managed to get in. I would focus on your EC, and I absolutely think its great to focus on non medically oriented volunteering and interests as well to be more diverse. For reference, heres my GPA/MCAT: Year 1: 3.61 Year 2: 3.75 Year 3: 3.53 Year 4: 3.96 MCAT: 513
