so i thought id share them with you guys

heres what i got so far, if anyone can fill in the blanks please do so! thanks (these are mostly MEAN GPAs unless otherwise written):

Vanderbilt U. School of Med. – no min., intense competition

Weill Med. College of Cornell U. – 3.7 (science gpa)

Albany – not stated

UNC Chapel Hill School of Med. – not stated


and i have a request..


I calculated my GPA today using the OMSAS website

dissappointingly its cumulatively 3.43

i still have to do 4th year but i dont think that counts


last year i wrote the mcat (30S - 10 ps, 9 vr, 11 bs)

im writing them again in 10 days to hopefully do better


my request is for advice as to whether i should bother applying to canadian schools (3.43 gpa.. but i have very good extracurrics such as laboratory and clinical research, publications, and volunteer work, and otehr stuff)


do i have a chance of getting into canada?


second request is advice on american schools

with these stats, and a hopefully better mcat, of the above schools which do i have a good chance of getting into, based on you peoples personal experience (numbers only tell you so much!)


thanks so much people

Numbers-wise, you might have a chance at some of the lower tier schools like Finch, NYMC, Boston U, etc. However, as you know this isn't all a numbers game. I was rejected at many of my "safety" schools with numbers well above their average accepted applicants.


You seem like a good candidate for osteopathic schools as well. You should look seriously at this route if you don't get in the first time around. For more info on osteopathic schools check my FAQ.

Are all 4 years of undergrad looked at by most American schools? My first year was terrible. As a grad student, will there be less emphasis on my undergrad GPA? Just hope they put more weight on MCAT scores :)
