The "gnome-shell" package is only available in the Debian experimental repository.

My desktop looks like the traditional mint desktop. Am I using what people are calling the fallback mode?
As you are running LMDE with more/less testing sources, you are not technically running a full GNOME3 system.
You are still running GNOME2.32 with various elements updated to v. 3.0.2. GNOME is in a transitory state right now in Debian, where many packages are starting to trickle down - but it will still be a little while before a full GNOME3 system is available in testing.

You can if you enable the Debian experimental repo's - but I wouldn't recommend it unless you know what your doing.
There is a thread on it here -> viewtopic.php?f=201&t=65745
