Hope Springs Eternal
Excuse my ignorance... "ABP?"
Anyway, here is my experience. I had very solid undergrad grades in pretty much everything... except the sciences.
Then I had an epiphany and decided that I REALLY wanted to become a doc, so I buckled down and did much better in my post-bac pre-med classes, and then earned a master's degree in Health Promotion with a 3.8 graduate GPA. I also served as a field medic (Navy hospital corpsman) with the Marines.
I will say only that my MCAT scores pretty much sucked compared to your 39, but I was accepted to a DO school in the US. (After I started med school I had a problem with a class, and remediated it last summer... but the school changed deans in my absence and I was denied readmission to the program, so I am now looking to finish my MD overseas. There was a lot of stuff involved with that situation, but suffice it to say that I will definitely be sending that interim dean a graduation announcement.)
Anyway, to cut a long-and-far-too-detailed-story-not-so-short... I certainly would think that you've got a shot! A 39 MCAT is really kick-butt, and you are obviously not the same student you were in undergrad. Good luck in all of your pursuits, and please let me know what "ABP" means.
