    when should I apply

    Advertisements



    Hi,
    I have a 2.9 cumGPA and a 2.7sGPA I haven't taken an MCAT but am scoring around a 35 on practice. When should I apply to the school or should I even bother? I want to go in during fall 2012 but I wouldn't mind May 2012 either.

    Apply ASAP...there's no wrong time to apply. If you can do May 2012, the May semester is the best semester to start in (see numerous discussions elsewhere about this). If you get anywhere in the mid 20's or above, you'll probably be accepted. Since you don't have an MCAT score yet, they may hold off on a decision until you do.

    The only way to guarantee non-acceptance is to not apply. Apply whenever you want.

    Just food for thought, but with an MCAT that high (if you do score somewhere around a 35), I'd strongly encourage you to apply to some US DO schools first! AUC is a great school, but give the DO schools a shot - it might make your life easier in the long run.

    Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
