    Post "What are My Chances?" Here ONLY

    I am very interested in attending St. George.
    I do not have a B.S. degree but have 206 units of college units.
    I have earned Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree and a licensed pharmacist in the state of michigan.
    My stats are as follows:
    Pre-requisite GPA: 3.25
    Pharmacy GPA: 3.03
    Math/Science GPA: 3.25
    Been in Active Duty for a few years and served as the Assistant chief, Department of pharmacy for a Military facility.
    I have not taken the MCAT due duty but will do so ASAP once back in the States. Officer in Charge for Inpatient pharmacy for 2 years and Served as the Recorder and Coordinator of Medication Use Evaluation Committee for the Hospital.
    Well, that is some of my stats and info.
    Anyone willing to comment on my chances of admission at SGU is welcomed (Positive or Negative)
    Thanks,

    If you get a 495 or higher on the MCAT, your chances are decent. BUT, they will question why you went into pharmacy and ask why the sudden change in mind going into medicine.

    The MCAT is the deciding factor.

    I think you should be fine. Did you apply for January 2018 semester? Have you already been offered an interview?

    Possible direct admission with either AEP or ITI. If anything might be offered CFP.

    Hi I would like to know what are my chances of getting accepted into SGU School of Medicine for September 2019. My college gpa is 3.45, science gpa 2.9, mcat is 495. I have over 200 hrs of volunteer experience in shadowing physicians at a hospital. I am also currently working in a lab as an undergraduate researcher and planning to get a publication for my research by the end of this year.

    Hello all, I was wondering what my chances are for September 2019?! I have applied and pretty much sent in everything minus my personal statement, and I’m taking another MCAT in March.
    Stats are:
    2.7 gpa
    2.5sgpa
    First MCAT was 485
    And will be taking it again in March
    -strong upward trend with my senior year GPA at 3.8
    -lots of shadowing and extracurricular, and volunteering
    -will be sending in about 5 letters of recommendation.
    Thoughts?

    Hi I was a student at SGU in 2019 until their DOS office recently kicked me out of my program.

    It started with the Chair of the department giving me wrong information to register, and when I did what I was told, her secretary had a very nasty tone about it, in the presence of others in the office. A few weeks later, I foolishly emailed the secretary to tell her about her manners and the Chair of the department escalated to the DOS office, without sitting with me to discuss it first.

    The DOS office scheduled me for meetings without consulting my schedule and expected me to show up, even when I was home sick and had to work. Mind you, I didn't get any scholarships and I had no financial help or means to get a loan so I needed to work for food, etc. I informed them of all the above but that was completely ignored because the "officials" in that DOS office seemed to figure they were too "official" to listen to anything I had to say. My position as TA at the school was also stripped from me because I was accused of "chronic" lack of attendance to their meetings. I was accused of many things, including reading my emails when home sick with an expired SGU password for accessing my account. I tried to be very diplomatic in my writing but I was also told, by DOS official and my department Chair, that my use of the word "convenient", "unethical", "uncouth" etc. was disrespectful.

    The DOS asked me to provide an apology, and I provided four (4) apologies, for the sake of peace, but they were all ignored. Mind you, one apology was written by an SGU supervisor and an SGU faculty with a Doctorate's degree. They gave me hell about poor communication, so I suppose the apologies from the supervisor and faculty member was also poor. SGU has their own court system and their lawyer slammed me with all sorts of violations, including falsifying university documents. When the panel asked the Chair of my department if she had signed my registration form, she said a very gruff "no", even though her signature is on the form in the registrar's office. With God, I was found not guilty for forgery!

    During detention sittings with my probation officer, I tried to ask her some questions about our previous discussions but she got red in the face and dismissed me from her office. One of the questions asked: "Why would you say that Dr. .... does not care when she is supposed to care"? I also asked a seperate official if was "supposed to leave my sick bed to attend those meetings" and she didn't respond. My probation letter said to email DOS if I had any questions but when I did that their lawyer created a string of violations about that. I also emailed the new Dean of SAS to ask him a question and to help him find the evidence he was looking for about my program but that also turned out to be a violation. The provost had no response to my emails and the new ombudsman said she has no power to do anything other than give me advice. Their lawyer also referred to me and my sentiments as "rat hole" and the panel members had nothing to say to that. I am still wondering which gov't is SGU bigger than!!

    I have evidence to show that the decision was made before the 2nd hearing was called and that is blatant discrimination - my account has a learning mgmt system lock hold that still says "DO NOTTTTT REMOVE" so I can't see my grades or request my transcript. Based on confessions from one of my cohort and from other students, SGU only have respect and humility for students with rich backgrounds - students with parents who are politicians, doctors, diplomats, etc. An esteemed member of society told me that "SGU is bigger than the government" because "they are not nice" and "you are not wrong but they just feel you should not tell them anything because you are too much in their face". Mind you, the provost had no response and neither did any other the higher heads, including the Chancellor, etc.

    I asked SGU for an apology but instead I got a whole lot of negative attitude, probation, a detention officer, 2 court cases and dismissal from my program (which I fought to enter into for many, many years) and from the university. One is ever open to correction and understands the need for discipline and rules but if SGU staff can't exemplify ethics and professionalism to students then how can they slam students from same??

    I rest my case!!

    No, you wont get in with a 2.5 sgpa and that mcat. If you somehow get above a 505 on your next mcat attempt, MAYBE they'll consider you for CFP.
