    BSEP Chances?

    Advertisements



    Hey guys
    I wanted to apply to AUA for med school and after talking to an admissions officer, I was told I would have to apply to BSEP program which I am fine with but I was wondering what my chances are of getting in..These are my grades and GPA:

    GPA: 2.642

    Chem 1: C
    Chem 2: C
    Chem lab:C
    Bio:C
    Bio 2:C
    Physics 1: C
    Physics 2: C
    Physics 1 lab: B
    Physics 2 lab: B
    Orgo 1: B
    Orgo 2: B
    Orgo lab: C

    I took a lot of upper level science electives as well and the grades ranged from B+'s- C's but I also have F's in there but I retook all those classes. I am not sure where I stand as far as BSEP goes. I have volunteered and was part of AMSA as well as shadowed.

    Also, what is the interview like? How can I explain these bad grades that occur randomly? There is no real reason but that I goofed off here and there and also went through some personal life issues. But I know for a FACT that I am beyond determined and I will do what it takes. Please help!! Thanks

    Hey! I've just been accepted into BSEP with the following grades.

    GPA: 3.0

    Chem 1: C
    Chem 2: A-
    Chem lab:A
    Bio:A
    Bio 2:A
    Physics 1: A-
    Physics 2: B+
    Physics 1 lab: B
    Physics 2 lab: B+
    Orgo 1: A
    Orgo 2: C
    Orgo lab: B-

    Interview process is more like a conversation, so that was very refreshing. Many questions about your resume and college/volunteer experiences. I was asked several times how my study habits changed etc.

    Yes, took the MCAT twice. For AUA only the MCAT is required for admission, but the score is not used for acceptance. Whereas other schools use it as a factor for admission.

    Oh, OK. You should normally have been good for direct admissions with that GPA. Unless you didn't do your best on the MCAT which shouldn't matter like you said. Good Luck in BSEP.

    Yeah, went from a 21 to 25 on MCAT (not too good) But I think it was mainly because I retook both bio 1 & orgo 1 (those were my after grades). I thought I had a shot for direct admission as well, but just grateful for the oppurtunity. Thank you!

    stina

    how come you did not apply to other Caribbean schools with those grades and mcat? or puerto rico schools?
    your grades + mcat seems good enough to get you into the med or pre programs at the big 4 in the Caribbean?
