3.0 GPA, 23 MCAT, Apply to Caribbean Schools? Or Re-take?
by heat48 (Posted Tue Sep 09, 2014 4:54 pm)Hello, I graduated from UCSD with a B.S. Physiology and Neuroscience, minor in Psychology with both a 3.0 overall and science GPA. I received a 23 on my MCAT. I volunteered in the hospital with about 250 hours complete, did about 3 -4 months of research, joined student groups at UCSD, and was a caregiver for my father who had a stroke throughout my whole undergrad. I know my chances at a U.S. school is slim to none, therefore, should I apply to a Caribbean school with these scores and background? Or re-take the MCAT? Or do something else? Thank You!

Minimal background in Science
Hi everyone, I am intending to sit the GAMSAT in London 2014 (for Australian Medical schools). I have a BSc in Psychology and am currently finishing off my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience (investigating systolic blood pressure fluctuations during tests of unconscious structural knowledge), and psychopharmacology, psychophyisiology and neuroanatomy/biology are my strong suits. However, I did lower-level Bio, Physics and Chemistry at A-levels (or the french equivalent in my case) so my understanding is very limited at the moment, particularly in Chemistry. Given that the exam is in March, and that I intend to hit the books...

MD & DO Constructive Criticism Needed
Wanted to get some feedback on my stats for past 5 years (super senior!). It's been a weird phase, being a transfer student and more a part-time pre med/full time musician for a good 3 years and then making a HUGE transition into wanting to pursue medicine not to boost my app but because of my genuine interest (the most cliche statement, I know). Applying 2014-2015 matriculation cycle. Academics: cGPA: 3.66 bcpmGPA: 3.6 MCAT: Will be taking between January and April 2014 Research: -Senior Honors Thesis: UCSD School of Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Div. of Gastroenterology, leukocyte trafficking in IBD;...

help with courseplan? feedback please!
Hi, So I have a 3.3 science gpa and a 3.45 cumulative gpa, I received 3 Cs in my sophmore year in BIO I AND II and Chem 1, however I am on an upward trend as in the last year I got a 4.0 both semesters and includes 5 science classes( took chem II, stats,and neuro in one semester and Physics and chem in next semester) However I received a W in organic chem 1. My question is I am a senior, and would like to raise my gpa up to atleast a 3.6 science before I apply, is it alright to take organic chem at a Community college and just do 2 classes per semester to try and get all As? I am obviously planning on delaying my undergr...

Slightly Freaking out- LOE
Okay so I have two Professor LOEs (No Committee in my school or whatever). They both teach science (Neuroscience) courses at my university. One prof has taught me behavioral pharmacology course (which technically falls under Psychology dept.) and will be teaching me a Neuroscience course this upcoming fall (which falls under science). The other prof has taught me Science course last year. Most schools ask for Profs from Faculty of Science. These two profs are neither technically from science faculty at my university, even though they teach science courses. Their research work though is intensive in areas such as Cortical P...

Advice on which SMP to choose.. LMU-DCOM or USC-South Carolina
Hi everyone, I am looking at two different SMP's and wondering which would be the best for me, given my stats, to gain admission to a D.O/M.D. program starting Fall 2014. First I will present my stats and then the programs I am looking at. I'm 24 with a B.S. in Biology. My overall GPA is a 3.25 and my science GPA is a 3.11. I have done 350 hrs shadowing physicians with 2 LOR (one MD and one DO) and 150 hrs volunteering in the ED. I have yet to take the MCAT, but am scheduled for June 20th, and plan to take at least 2 more times this summer (july & august). I have been studying through Kaplan test prep for a month and r...

SMP, Post-bac, or PA School, and Advice for Very Likely Re-applicant
Here's my info: cGPA - 3.45 sGPA - 3.35 (as calculated by AMCAS) MCAT - 32L (BS: 12, PS: 10, VR: 10, WS: L) The low WR was likely a result of me not finishing either sample, as I am generally a very strong writer; I was on the last paragraph for both samples. Also, I'm not worried about this as it isn't even on the MCAT anymore. ECs - 2 years as an aid in a psychiatric hospital, 2 years as an aid on a med/surge unit, 3 months (currently employed) as a clinical research coordinator for cardiology, CT surgery, and IR clinical trials, 1 semester as a research assistant in a cognitive neuroscience lab, 2 years as a researc...

Planning for the Worst...
Howdy: I'm having a frustrating cycle. I've only received 2 interview invites (one complete and pending, the other in early March), from the 23 schools I've submitted my application to. I'm beginning to fear that I might have to reapply next cycle. I'm looking for some advice on how I should proceed. My GPA (especially my BCPM GPA) is clearly very weak. I'd love to think that I might get another interview or two...but I'm having a hard time accepting that on faith considering how quiet things have been. Would it be best if I just bit the bullet and applied for an SMP for 2013? Or are there alternatives that might suit me...
