I am a 3rd year student in a health sciences program. My GPA from first year is really weighing me down, it is a 2.7. In second year I received a 3.7. I am planning to write my MCAT this summer and I have volunteered at a physio clinic and a hospital for a bit. I am looking to do some research this year. Most of my jobs have been in the restaurant business. I like to workout/run/ do yoga. What can I do to improve my application ? Any advice is welcome!
