    Advertisements



    Hey everyone,

    Was wondering if you guys think I would get in and what my other potential options be for applying?

    Thanks for your time.

    Great GPA but you definitely need to rewrite that MCAT. If you want to apply to the UK you can write the UKCAT. If you do well and you have ECs you have a good shot in the UK as well.

    Why not try with some of the US DO schools. They are flexible with GPA and MCAT scores. Recently my daugther got accepted into a good DO school. MCAT 27 and GPA 3.65.

    It won't work with such a low MCAT. OP needs to rewrite his MCAT to have a shot.

    Would they offer me the 5 year program if i can't get into the 4 year ? Also could I just apply for the 5 year next year if I don't get accepted? With my GPA i should get into the 5 year right ?

    I think one school does this, maybe King's College London. Other schools don't say it so I presume no.

    You only have a shot with the 5 year if you have a good UKCAT score and good high school grades. They look at high school grades for UK applicants not sure about international ones though.

    Why not apply for MS in Life Science program. That is a 1 year program essentially covers first year of the medical school. If you do well then Medical school would consider you for admission at their school. LECOM and several other schools has a similar program. This is the best bet. You build a strong foundation towards medical school. You also get to take MCAT again. Since you are in the same school they get a chance to get to know you and offer the admission in their medical school. More than all it is US based degree so you'll be eligible for US financial aid. Why not take a look into it. I looked at those programs for my daughter, luckily she get her self into a good DO school on her own.

    Check out the "DO underdog thread" on SDN. There are applicants who get interviewed/accepted with your stats so it's not impossible. Apply to schools like LUCOM, Burrell etc.
    Your GPA is great. I'd re-take the MCAT and apply early May next cycle.
