Hello - I am a Canadian Student who just graduated with a 2.5 GPA and no MCAT. However, I do have a long list of volunteer, extracurricular activities, research, job, awards and scholarships. The reason for the low gpa is because of an incident that happened in 2nd year of university (my grandfather passed away in a car accident during final exam period. soon after this my relatives were affecgted in the Tsunami).
Through the Atlantic Bridge PRogram, I can apply to 5 Irish med schools (which don't require the MCAT).
What are my chances? I've heard from people that admission is competitive AND I've also heard that Irish and UK schools compete for students from North America.
