Do I Have A Chance?

Postby medschoolbound » Mon Jul 06, 2009 10:22 am

Hi everyone... I'm new to this forum, but I wanted to see what you guys think. I'm applying to OUCOM and would like to know what my chances are. Here are my stats:

MCAT: 24N (8 bio, 7 phys, 9 v.r.)
Cum. GPA: 3.63
Sci GPA: 3.40

I have nearly 600 hours volunteering under two family practice D.O.'s at a small rural hospital, not to mention numerous awards, academic accomplishments, etc. I'm an Ohio resident and want to stay in the state. I'm currently in one of OUCOM's summer programs, which guarantees me an interivew THIS MONTH! I already have all of my paperwork submitted, but I just would like to know where I stand and if I have a chance at getting in. Thanks...

Welcome!

The MCAT is really low but I think you have a chance at DO schools sure

Just know the cut off has risen to 28 these days, it used to be about 25 to 26 just 4 years ago but the Competition is very stiff

If I was you I would apply but think about restudy and retake the MCAT

if you do not get into DO and do not want to retake then the Caribbean will accept you.

Good Luck :wink:

The AVERAGE MCAT of DO schools is 25, so you have a great shot.

As a 2nd year DO student, I can tell you that you have a shot because I have friends with similar stats.

Don't worry what anyone in an online forum thinks, just apply. Good luck!
