    Chances please help


    Hi guys , I really hope someone can help me out
    I am a student attending ohio state university
    i have been through a lot. Many obstacles came in my way of becoming a physician
    but I just don't want to give up.
    My first year in school was not great I didn't do well my first semester
    but later on I had to move and went to another university away from many distractions and have received all As in biology (1 yr) , general chemistry (1yr) and physics(1yr)
    however I got married and due to my culture and finances becoming a physician was not an option
    i switched from biology to a world economy and business degree back at ohio state and I'm about to graduate next semester
    i feel empty and I feel like I'm not living the life I have dreamed of living
    I can just give up and surrender to marriage , chores, business,
    or I can give becoming a doctor a try so at least I can tell myself I tried

    sorry for the long story I just need help.
    I don't have an mcat score and will not be taking it because I want to apply very soon

    If my gpa is calculated from all the schools I've been through my overall would be a 3.2 or so and science a 3.4-3.5

    also after that phase of thinking becoming a physician is impossible I still wanted something to do with healthcare so I did medical interpreting (I speak arabic and Spanish) for two years
    I had great I mean great experience because I basically got to shadow doctors everyday and study their lives watching my dream from afar.
    I interpreted for patients that are just getting check ups to a patient that was delivering a baby and I had to hold her leg with the nurse
    I also did video interpreting which is more demanding and had to learn how to not get so attached to the patients on the screen that usually call you everyday. Some of them passed away, some survived long surgeries .. Some children some in hospice
    I mean great experience

    the thing is
    I still don't have the mcat, probably will not have a score anytime soon, no organic chemistry

    Getting accepted would mean a total change, a new life for me and I wouldn't mind that at all.

    What do you think my chances are at Saba ,AUA? Or any other school that is not so strict about the mcat
    is there a way I can just take the Ochem at one of those schools before I actually get into the MD program? Any schools that offer a year of provisional admission if not all requirements are met ?? Anything at all to help my situation??
    i would really appreciate any help, i mean I am literally sending this while I'm handling a mountain of laundry .. Please reply
    thank you

    Students do not need an MCAT score for consideration to AUA. US Citizens and permanent residents must submit a score prior to matriculation (as we are required to collect those scores by the DOE) but that score will not affect a rendered decision.

    Students who have not successfully completed their prerequisite courses are encouraged to consider American International College of Arts and Sciences in Antigua (AICASA). AUA has an articulation agreement with AICASA, students who successfully complete the AICASA program and do not have conduct unbecoming of a medical school student are invited to join AUA. AICASA coursework will include outstanding prerequisites and additional foundation work that will prepare students for the AUA COM curriculum. You can find more at: AICASA

    The admission committees at both schools evaluate students holistically. I'm not able to predict what they will decide, but I do encourage you to apply to either AICASA, or AUA-COM if you can squeeze in Orgo before the start. Feel free to message or email me with any questions. dhermon@auamed.org
