I graduate next year and I've been questioning whether I should take the GREs or MCATs? Are they equally hard? Which would be preferred? Right now I have a 3.3, do I have a chance of getting accepted? Any advice??? Thanks all...

I would say you have a chance. I have a 3.37 and took the GRE and have interviews at Nova and South. Good luck!
Congrats on the interview!! but I've heard that its tough to get into the program... and students with 3.5's are applying and not getting in. Was there something in your application that you thought made you stand out? Extracurriculars, projects, papers? Thanks!
I got a 161 on the Verbal and 154 on the Quantitative. This was a retake because I did not so great on the the quantitative the first time. I didn't have any special activities, just the Dean's list several semesters. I honestly couldn't tell you what made me stand out. Just lucky enough to get interviews at NSU Ft Lauderdale, Tampa and at South.
That's great! Good luck at all your interviews! I took the gre without studying one bit due to having absolutely no time and did quite poorly as expected. I made a 156 verbal and 148 quant. (I've worked the entire time ive been in school and have been taking classes continually since 2010, no summers off or anything!) I graudate in December and plan on actually studying and retaking it late january. That's past Souths deadline but hopefully NOVA will give me a chance!
Kgoodin52, congrats on the interviews. Have you been offered admission to either of the programs, if you don't mind me asking? If you still haven't gone to any of the interviews can you tell us when your dates are for each school? I'm just waiting to hear from them and all this wait is kinda getting to me!
I have interviewed at Nova-Ft. Lauderdale and Tampa, as well as South. I was wait-listed at South, but accepted to Tampa's program. I have yet to hear from Ft. Lauderdale, but Tampa is closer to home anyway so it would be a better choice for me.
Thanks Kgoodin52. Congrats on your acceptance. I know how hard you must have worked to get to this point. Can I keep in touch with you through this message board or email? I'm waiting to hear from Nova, and if/when that time comes I would really appreciate it if you can tell me a little about how the interview was setup and what to expect.
