The thing is..I am a weak student but I have an extraordinary passion for medicine...but I only have a GPA of 3.2. So, I don't really know what to do. I was thinking maybe by going to a bad university or something close to it....maybe my GPA will go up to atleast 3.4 or 3.5


Are you finished with your undergrad?

Yes..I am in my final year and I was wondering whether i have any chance of getting admission to medical school? But I have heard that 3.2 GPA won't cut it at all and I have a very slim chance of getting in

A 3.2 is very competetive in the Carribean, you'd have a shot at US DO schools, but you're really stretching it for US Allopathic.

You should be fine for the Carib, don't worry about it.
