    OR Should I do a Post-Bacc then apply?
    The sGPA is rough...even if you did rock a 27-30 a 2.3 sGPA is real low. I'd apply for Jan or May semesters if you rock the MCAT and just go from there

    Chance?

    Hi guys, here's my story I'm 29 years old I have a bachelor's of science in accounting, went back to school and did my premeds, I have decent grades in all my prereqs A's and B's. Studied for the Mcat for 3 months was scoring in the high 20's on practice tests, took the MCAT last Sept. Got a 20. What are my real chances of getting into AUC. I have a friend who went there, and I've visited the campus before and would really love to go there. I haven't applied yet due to some family issues but any advice/help would be appreciated. Thank you all in advance

    It was likely your MCAT that held you back I going to guess.

    What is your cGPA and sGPA? Regardless, your chances are slim with a 20 MCAT. Retake the MCAT; shoot for a 24+ and your chances will be decent with a 3.0+ sGPA/cGPA.

    chances?

    hey what's up? I was wondering about my chances
    if i apply at the end of June for the Jan semester

    my gpa is 3.3 with sgpa at 3.4 but i got a
    C in anatomy 1 and a B in anatomy2 which can't look too good
    I'm taking my MCAT in May
    my average on the aamc practice tests is about a 31 (+or- 2) with B12 V11 P7

    problem is i just decided to go medicine my senior year
    so i got no long term volenteer (except teaching poor Guatamalan kids english for a summer). and I don't think i can get really solid recommendation letter either (have shadowing experience and doctor letter... just not very good ones)

    also for the Jan and May semesters, do you have to wait a year to take your STEP 1 and 2 and matching for residency cause you didn't start at the fall semester like most US schools?

    thanks for the help guys!

    I want to do doctor w/o boarder as a primary care so I don't want to do DO since a MD is more useful internationally

    If you score 30+ in the MCAT, you still have a shot at US MD; but you have to boost up your ECs and have good LORs. However, if you are interested in primary care, the carib is a good plan B, and a 24+ MCAT will get you in at AUC, ROSS, SABA. However, for St Georges I think you might need 26+.

    Hi guys, I'm new to this website and went through few pages of this post and was wondering if I could get some feedback on my situation and if I stand a chance on getting accepted. Graduated from undergrad with cGPA 2.8 and pre req 2.9 with a degree in Biological Sciences. I am currently in a Post bacc program, curriculum is very similar to MS1 (antomy,immuno,pharm,pathology,physio,biochem etc). Finished 1st semester with 3.5 (B in Physio, Microbio and A's in biochem,cell bio,genetics), doing well 2nd semester as well (B in Anatomy, Immuno and rest As). I will finish the program with GPA around 3.4-3.6. Any ideas?? Thanks

    forgot to add my MCAT. 23Q (10PS,9BS,4V)
