  1. Thank you for your input avacado_toast- I appreciate it! I do plan to apply again to u of m this coming cycle, but I would like some insight into the schools on my list and whether I should apply to those or any others. My concern is solely getting accepted into a medical school and working towards becoming a practicing physician. I am tired of putting all my eggs in one basket with u of m, and would like to get an acceptance somewhere. If you or anyone else could help me with my list of schools, it’d be greatly appreciated. As well, I am a dual citizen (American and Canadian) and I am curious if that would change my status from an international applicant to an out of state applicant. Thanks to anyone putting their time in reading this!
  2. Hello all. First time poster on this forum- however, I have been on it many times in the past few years! A little history- I live in Manitoba (Canada) and just got refused by the U of M for the third year in a row- I have interviewed there 3 times. This has been the only school I have been applying to, because I thought that if I raised my MCAT score, I would get in- no such luck. So here I am, trying to figure out where to apply. My first MCAT was 507 (127/126/126/128), my second score was 506 (126/127/128/125) and my third was 514 (127/127/130/130). I am curious if anyone knows of a resource that explains how different schools view multiple scores (i.e. taking the top score, averaging scores, etc.). I have completed a 3 year B.Sc. degree with a major in biochemistry and am 2 courses short of a 4 year degree. My cumulative gpa is 3.67 (on a 4 point scale). I have gone through the MSAR and have compiled a list of potential US schools, which is as follows (and the numbers do not represent my preferences): 1. Chicago Med Rosalind Franklin 2. Eastern Virginia Med School 3. Florida State University College of Medicine 4. George Washington University School of Med 5. Michigan State University College of Human Medicine 6. Tulane University School of Med 7. Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University 8. Central Michigan University College of Medicine 9. Sidney Kimmel Medical College (my gpa may be too low for this) 10. Tufts University School of Medicine I would appreciate any input as to whether it is worth my time to apply to US schools (based on my stats), if the ones on my list make sense (should I get rid of any/add any), as well as if it would make more sense to apply to Ireland. Carribean schools are not a consideration at this time. Thank you for any input!
