3.73 last 2 year = no chance?


Recommended Posts

Hey I was wondering if you guys had a good sense of what the last 2 yr gpa cutoff was for this cycle? Would I have a chance with a 3.73 last 2 year GPA?

 

Thanks

 

First they look at overall GPA (cGPa) and then if you are below the cutoff, which I think is a 3.7, then they look at last two years to see if you can meet it. If not, then I think you're flagged.

Then what does the final GPA have to be?

If my cGPA is >> 3.7 but my last 2 years is only around 3.7, do I stand a chance as well?

cgpa is the first cutoff. It you meet that, they don't look at your 2 year gpa. The last 2 year gpa cutoff is only for people who don't meet the cgpa cutoff.

yea i bombed my first year so my cumulative isnt 3.7 :( is their new system more lenient or do they have hard cutoffs. So could I balance out my 3.73 with a good mcat and solid Ecs?

 

Okay...so your cGPA < 3.7, and your last two years is < 3.75...I would still apply as you're close, but you do risk them dismissing your application because of academic cutoff.

 

To my understanding, Queens and Western are both hard cut-off schools. If you don't meet any of their reqs, you don't get an interview.

But their MCAT reqs went up :(

 

What did everyone decide the number cutoffs were in the end? The writing went down.

I am pretty sure they are hard cut offs, but I dont think they specifically said that anywhere. Plus, the cutoffs change year to year so its hard to predict when you are so close. I think you need to meet the cut offs and then still do well on ECs/refs as there were people this year who had good enough MCAT and GPAs but didnt get interviews right?

What did Queens increase for their MCAT reqs again? I don't remember exactly (kinda multitasking in class ATM) but something went up.

 

Yup, last year was pretty surprising...they seemed to look at ECs and LORs as well, which I believe they historically did after interviews. Queens never says on their site that they are "hard cutoff" so you should apply anyway and see.
