    SGUSOM: Incoming August 2015 Class forum

    Advertisements



    Sorry if there is already one of these floating around (feel free to post the link to it if there is!)

    Anyway, I'm thrilled to say that I will be attending SGUSOM starting August 2015 (unless I get in somewhere else in the US which is unlikely [<-- unfortunate to say...]... but hey... I'll take what I can get because I just want to practice medicine! "I am Jack's last resort" <-- Fight club reference) I'd like this forum to be an opportunity to start getting to know other prospectives of this class and exchange ideas, advice, tips, stories, and just help each other mentally and emotionally prepare for this next step in our lives! I guess I'll start...

    I won't give my name other than just "Al" cause there are definitely some crazy people on these forums hah.. so if you care to know, just send me a message or something. I'm 26. I'm from Jacksonville, FL. I got a Bio degree at Florida State University and then a Medical Science Masters at University of South Florida. For those that are curious, I got accepted with a [GPA 3.41cum, 3.31sci, MCAT: same as my age.... Medical Science Master's GPA 3.68]. I showed an upward trend starting my senior year of undergrad. I did research in Tumor virology and also was a lab instructor for Biology for non-majors. Did a medical science master's after undergrad cause I felt I needed a boost. Worked as an ER physician scribe for the past 3 yrs. Also recently engaged and my fiance is coming to SGU with me as a significant other!!! (so if there is anyone in THAT particular boat, definitely let me know)! I'm looking forward to hearing from more of you guys/gals!

    PM for the link to the fb group page.

    Hey, what's up Al? Congrats on your admittance to SGU! �� I had my interview on the 29th and am hoping that I will be getting an acceptance. I was told to expect word by this Friday, give or take a day or two. I haven't heard about the tour that you mentioned in your post. How is that supposed to work?

    What's up! Yeah, I had my interview on 1/27 and got my acceptance on 2/2, so I'm sure you'll be hearing back soon. Good luck with that. I went to an info sesh and one of the admission consultants/speakers said that if you choose to matriculate into SGUSOM, they will cover airfare expenses so you can tour...which is great cuz the 1st deposit ($500) is due 2 wks from acceptance and another ($1400) due in May. I don't know about yours but my round trip out of Jacksonville, FL is $800-$900. Anyway, definitely let me know how it goes. Good luck again.

    Will do. I'm sitting over here on pins and needles while I await the decision. I pray that it will come out in my favor and hopefully in the next few days, I will be in here saying that I'll be joinging you in August!

    congrats! I didn't find one so I just made one "SGUSOM August 2015 Entering Class". If you come across other prospectives, definitely let them know. I'm gonna start another forum on studentdoc

    Unfortunately, I didn't get offered a seat at SGU for August 2015 ... But I did get one for January 2016!!!! I'm thrilled to be starting medical school!
