hi Dr. Ferdinand:
I took the MCAT 6 times and got 29 as my most recent score. My first score was 24, and it has gone up and down for the 6 MCAT’s in the past 3 years. My GPA is 3.6. I’m applying to medical schools now, but in case I don’t get in, how would you recommend me to improve my credentials? How much can publications in basic sciences help an applicant’s profile? Do publications in clinical sciences help it more? Where would you place publications among the applicant credentials that range from the most to the least important beginning with GPA, MCAT, graduate course work, letters of recomm., and clinical experience? Thank you so much for your help.
