    What are my chances of getting accepted? Please help.

    Advertisements



    I will be applying for either May 2010 or September 2010... I am not sure

    Overall GPA: 3.4
    Science GPA: 2.9

    My MCAT is pretty low though... 19

    I have volunteered in many third world countries, I have excellent LORs, and extracurriculars...

    Will I be accepted?

    Also, would you recommend applying for the May 2010 semester or September 2010? I plan to apply in a couple of months.

    I'd apply to AUC, Ross, and Saba with those scores. AUA will definitely let you in

    Okay, thanks for the advice.

    Can you also tell me the advantages/disadvantages for applying May vs. September if there are any?

    i doubt a 2.9 science and a 19 MCAT will get you into the above schools.

    May tends to be a little bit smaller of a class that's less competitive. September is the most competitive semester with the most applicants because it's the traditional start date. You will also have more time to study for the USMLE if you start in May because you graduate with the September class. This gives you roughly four months of extra time over the September class. Hope that helps. Good luck!

    AUA will take you but apply quick 'cus I hear things are getting tighter with Cali approval on the line. I know AUC avg stats right now for Sept 2008 class were 26MCAT, 3.3GPA - don't know about Saba or Ross (out of AUC, Ross & Saba, Ross is the easiest one to get into - try for there also - u mite make it to MERP (their med-school prep program)). Goodluck.

    Yeah I agree it will be difficult considering the MCAT score; however, I think you have a pretty good shot at Ross. SGU you probably have little or no chance, considering your MCAT score, but I'd try for the other two as well. The point is, you never know with these caribbean schools.

    Thanks for all of your help! I think I will probably retake the MCAT... and even then I will still have enough time to apply for May/September.

    I figured my MCAT would give me little chance at the Big 4, but do you all think it would be okay for AUA? I honestly wouldnt mind Antigua at all...

    AUA doesn't require an MCAT score, so I wouldn't submit it. 3.4 overall GPA is more than enough for AUA

    with those stats, the only option i can see is either Ross Merp program (eventhough i heard their avg mcats are 21), AUA, SMU and MUA. you will have no shot at sgu, auc or saba.
