    Potential Applicant

    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading quite a bit on the forums and decided to ask for some input in my first post.

    Stats: B.S. in Biology, B.A. in Psychology; cGPA = 3.34 sGPA 3.1
    M.S. Medical Physiology, MBA; GPA = 3.63, 3.5, respectively
    MCAT: 505... breaking down as 126/126/122/130. I scored quite low in biochemistry due to time constraints (33rd percentile) but phenomenally in psych (97th percentile).



    Currently, I'm between starting my MD this May (should I apply to AUC) or risking another year and applying to DO/lower tier MDs in the US.

    Looking for some advice/input on my stats and whether or not you would risk the extra year.

    Thank you

    Please quit the delusions. On what planet are you getting into a US school with a 3.1 science GPA and a 28 MCAT?

    I am sure some DO schools would consider your application. My Daughter got into a DO school with similar scores.
