    If that is not a typo and your MCAT is a 40, you should be just fine getting into AUC.

    no typo. but poor science grades all up in until that 40 have been killing me in the US, and I am more than worried. Ross wants me to take the MERP, but i'm 95% sure that it just means DeVry wants my money.

    I would explain the grades in the personal statement. I do not see any reason AUC would not accept. Just my opinion as AUC student; however.

    I think you could get in at AUC, definitely worth the try and I'd rather be at AUC than Ross anyway.

    thanks. i am sending my application in tomorrow.
    i'm leaning towards AUC as well, for quality of life, and the overall amazing residencies they get, at least according to the website.
    we'll see what they say when i apply.

    To be fair, AUC, Ross, and SGU all get good residencies, but I chose AUC for quality of life (and gold is just so damn fancy!). Good luck!!

    Slevit, I think you're going into the wrong field. You should be a medical school admissions counselor. What semester are you?

    Semester zero

    I worked in admissions though in undergrad and was the leader of the ambassador program...and i stayed at a holiday in express!

    I start in august but seeing as no student is qualified to give admissions info (which this post has a disclaimer about), i'm at least as un-qualified as anyone else

    Don't bother with Ross. Try applying to SGU and AUC. See what their responses are. If you are declined, ask them what can you do to bolster your application and make it stronger and then reapply. Don't settle for anything.

    Also, if you need to upgrade your CV to make it more "competitive", think about applying to DO schools too at the same time.

    Do I even have a chance at this school?
    I have gotten the following:
    bio 1: 80
    bio 2: 71
    cal 1: 68
    cal 2: 87
    algebra: 77
    gen chem 1:75
    gen chem 2:75
    org 1:74
    english:82
    english:70
    I have a college degree in arts which (includes english but not science) with an average of: 77
    if you includes the science and other classes I took:76
    I have a university degree in biochemistry which I took at a top NA school (English is not my 1st language)
    I failed org 2 with 53 at first than I got a B (70-75)
    I got A- in org 3
    Overall in my BSc I got a gpa of 2.6 all the classes I took were science
    I took some pathology, immuno, pharmaco, neuro, anatomy...
    In the last 2 semesters I have gotten around 3 as my term gpa
    I have not volunteered in 3 years since I had to work to pay for my school
    My job is a technical position at a preclinical company
    I have volunteered in a hospital for 50 hours (3-4 years ago)
    gone to 3rd world country for 2 weeks (7 years ago)
    I tought first aid, swimming, gym and worked with autistic kids (3 years ago but did it for 5 years)

    as extracurricular I did 7years of skating when I was a kid, tons of swimming, art, cheerleading (no official team or competition), dance school (4 years of hip hop and jazz)
    I really haven't done anything lately exept for salsa with my fiance and scrapbooking our vacations together

    As is stands do you think I have a chance?
    I'm thinking of writting the MCAT if it will help
    And I'm thinking of doing a MSc in biochem first but if I can get in right away I think it is pointless
