    Entering class May 2006

    Advertisements



    I am applying for the May start date and I was wondering if anyone has been accepted? Would you be willing to share your stats and experiences? Or just introduce yourself.....

    I'm not accepted yet, but I'm sending out my app this week and hoping to gain admissions soon. I've been researching the school and posting on Value MD forever now. My husband and I visited the school in May and met with SG. I'm comfortable with SMU and can hardly wait to have a definitive answer. BTW, I was previously Bedazzled. I changed my email and forgot my password, so I can't recieve it at my new email address.

    may

    I'm sure some people have been accepted for May. But, you might want to contact the school to make sure. It is a rolling addmission process, so they review it and let you know something in a few weeks. I am a current first semester and I am loving it so far. The material isn't too bad right know, but I know its going to pile-up as the semester goes along. My stats were in undergratuate were as follows - overall GPA was 3.68 and science GPA 3.75. I didn't take the MCAT because I didn't want to wait another year before applying to med school in the states. They usually look for a way to accept you. I had about 5 1/2 years of med experience as a nursing assistant. It is usually good to have some experience so they know you are familur with the profession. It is also a good island to bring your family, it is vary safe. My wife came with me and she loves it. Well, good luck. I'm sure you will be fine and hope to see you in May.

    accepted for May 2006

    Hey

    I am accepted for the May 2006 semester. Can't wait to start (very excited). (Undergrad G.P.A. 3.2 PostBacc 3.4) MCAT: Lets just say it wasn't good. I am a firm believer that the MCAT does not reflect my ability to achieve in medical school. Cannot wait to meet all of you.

    This thread was meant for incoming May 2006 students. Posting/Bashing other people or schools is not the purpose of this thread. Since a May 2006 thread is needed, I will move the posts that have nothing to do with the original purpose of the thread into another one and lock it. Anyone posting stuff way off topic on this thread again will be issued a warning! You all should know better.

    Hello,

    I was accepted about two weeks ago for the May 06' Semester. I'm excited to finally get the ball rolling. My stats are certainly nothing to boast about. Overall GPA 2.88, Science GPA 3.0, MCAT 19. I can't wait to get back to school and actually see what I am capable of doing (I was kind of unmotivated in undergrad). I did have a good bit of clinical experience to help things along with my application. Can't wait to meet all of you.

    Im a 24 year old guy from Harrisburg Pa. I Like pina coladas and walks in the rain. La ta la ta da. Humm humm...

    See ya in May

    I recently applied for the Fall '06 class. And my overall gpa is 2.8 with an MCAT=24. If it wasn't for my first year I would have had a much higher gpa, around 3.4. All my pre med classes are B's or above except Organic Chem (got C , C+). I am a bio major with uppper division bio classes grades= B's or higher. A school official(not from the admissions dept) called me asking me to explain why I got a D in Psychology and a D in Pre-Cal. I told him to look at my other math grades Cal I=B, Calc=A-, his reponse: "oh I didn't notice that." I don't understand how you judge an applicant without looking at everything first , rather than trying to find few bad grades. Anyway he said he doesn't know if the Admissions Committee would grant me an acceptance. What you guys think...I know that this is a very repititive question.
