    need HELP with admissions!!!

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,
    I am currently in my last semester as an undergard.. i took all my required pre-req courses (bio, chem, orgo, phys..) I was not very studious or motivated when i started college so i slacked off a lot, which really hurt my GPA.. i had to re-take some of the courses as well. I guess i learned my lesson the hard way!
    I have a 2.5 gpa and a 20 on the MCAT.. Is there a chance i would be able to get accepted into one of the Carib. schools and if there is which schools should i apply to. Also, i come from a family that struggles financially, so i would need a school that offers loans.
    I know i can do well in med school, i wish i was serious enough 4 yrs ago.. but i messed up... is there any other program that you know of that i can apply to that would help me with admission into med school. Im willing to do whatever it takes!!!
    Thanks so much for your help!
    Jes

    Your best luck is going to be to go to a school with cheaper tuition that isn't likely to shut down on you anytime soon. (eg. financially stable as a school) because the schools have also taken hits financially with the bank issues. Again your best bet would be somewhere like Windsor, Spartan, IAU, St. Eustatius that all have cheaper tuition.

    That 2.5 GPA is quite low for admission at any of the reputable medical schools. Consider doing a post-bachelor's program designed to prepare students for medical school or a master's degree in the medical sciences. Good performance on either would make your application more appealing to admissions committee, would show your seriousness now and would give you a better foundation on which to build the medical curriculum.
