    Hi Guys! I need help!

    I finished my B. Medical Science at Sydney University in 2011. Applying for med for 2013.
    My GPA is 4.7 which doesn't appear to be high enough to get in anywhere! I had a GAMSAT score of 61 last year and think I did much better this year. I'm trying to figure out what my options are. At the moment the only school I can find is Notre Dame which has a GPA cutoff of 5.0 with some leniency.

    Does anyone know if there are other Medical Schools in Australia that have some leniency with the GPA if you have a very high GAMSAT score eg. Wollongong uni (GPA cutoff 5.0).

    Also, does anyone know if it's possible to apply for undergraduate medicine even if you have a degree because my ATAR (equiv.) was very high when I left school and I'm resitting the UMAT this year.

    Any information would be much appreciated!
