    Should I apply?

    Advertisements



    Hello
    I am having a little trouble about applying to medical school. I graduated from a university in New Jersey in JAn. 2009.
    My gpa cumulative is 3.0- I have had a few bad grades and I have retaken a few science courses.
    University gpa: 2.72
    Community College 1 gpa: 3.61
    Community college 2 gpa: 3.66
    I have not taken the MCATs yet.

    I have plenty of volunteering hours and I have worked in a hospital my four years as an undergrad.

    Should I bother applying to medical school yet or should I wait and take more classes to bring my gpa up?

    MCAT is KING. The MCAT can get you in anywhere even with poor grades. Until then, don't do anything.

    No MCAT = NO BIG 4 = NO SGU/ROSS/AUC/SABA
    you will get in to the none big 4 for sure --> SMU,SJSM,AUA,MUA....
    Suggestion: Take MCAT! other than big 4 will make your life much harder!

    Agreed, Take the MCAT & Few courses

    Take some "easier" courses at University / college to boost your GPA then take the MCAT, and re-apply.

    If not the big 4, then consider some good schools with solid track record, i.e. over 10 years History....some states will require that....Hx on ValueMD showed us at least 5 schools that opened promised the world then closed in few years...

    If becoming an MD is your calling, then go after it !!

    Cheers,

    My vote: Study for the MCAT rigorously, ace it and apply to the big 4. U.S. is out of the question with those stats.
