Ask Marilyn: Is There a Doctor in Your House?

Anonymous in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, writes:

Marilyn: Can a student with above-average, relatively good grades—but not a 4.0—become a medical doctor? My daughter is a fairly good student and wants to go to medical school after she completes her bachelor's degree in biology. Is it possible for an above-average student to succeed if she has extremely good study skills and is tenacious? Or do you absolutely need lots and lots of brains?

Marilyn responds:

Are your daughter's good study skills earning her a GPA of 3.6 or more? If so, and she does well on the MCAT, she would definitely be in the running.
