    Class of 2015, August 2011 Acceptees

    Advertisements



    Hey everybody! I was accepted for fall of 2011 and was hoping to get to know some of my colleagues before we start this adventure. I'm from Wisconsin, but I've moved around quite a bit. Is anybody else from New Orleans or Tampa? What are your interests and goals? I am very excited (and a little nosy ) to meet you all!

    Good luck with your application! I thought that AUC was really nice about the entire process and completely willing to do status updates periodically. I have a 29P MCAT, 3.34 undergrad GPA, and 3.91 grad GPA(in sciences), and I found out literally less than two weeks after they said my application was complete.

    Are you class of 2015 too? Or are you already enmeshed in med school?

    Why in the heck did you not apply to US MD and DO programs?

    I did apply to US MD (11 universities), but I didn't get an interview to a single place (it's not a nice memory). DO is simply not for me for various (and numerous) reasons. Since I'm 25, I thought that I needed to get moving because I'm not getting any younger . Also, I waited until after I had already earned my masters degree in molecular medicine (sorta like biochem) to apply so that I had already, as one admissions counselor put it, "academically redeem myself", and I felt like I did the work that needed to be done for acceptance (including volunteering and shadowing), but apparently my graduate GPA and MCAT do not make up for my undergrad GPA. The US MD admission process (as I'm sure you know) is awful and so stressful. We type A personalities have a hard time with the fact that there is nothing left to control after the application is sent. It's hard living life in limbo, which is why I decided to apply Caribbean. AUC is the only place that I considered and applied to, and I'm very excited to start. Are you one of my classmates?

    I'd really try to exhaust the DO possibility really. Becoming a resident from the Caribbean school is such a horrible experience and it's only going to get harder
