Yeah, but med school admissions are so competitive that they have to thin the herd anyway they can. So, they are selective about everything.
Things that hurt you on your med school app:
Low GPA (#1)
Low MCAT (#2)
Too many Ws (not factored into GPA, but looks kinda bad)
Completion of certain pre-reqs (Bio, Organic Chem) at CC
Not enough experience in a clinical setting (volunteering/shadowing/etc...)
