Chances At Usmd


Recommended Posts

Hey there. Just a quick question about my chances at low-tier MD schools:

 

Graduated with cGPA: 3.91, latest MCAT: 30 (11/9/10) (previous attempt was 27)

-significant and longterm leadership

-2 pubs, another pub in prep

-close to 7 academic and extracurriclar awards

-NSERC USRA

-presently doing clinical research, may be doing one-year masters based on outcome of applications

 

Any opinions/input is greatly appreciated.

You have a strong GPA, the low MCATs, albeit improved might be a bit of an impediment - however still strongly encourage you to apply broadly to all USMD low and mid tiers. Especially if your ECs are decent as it seems to be.

 

Apply broadly and on the first day when the 2016 cycle opens in May-June-ish.

 

Have all your LORs and Personal Statement etc ready to go. 

 

I would pick out 4-5 USDO schools you may be interested in and apply as well, you should at least 2 interviews for sure, just in case USMD doesn't bite.  Strongly encourage you to throw your app at MSU-COM, as they don't historically do interviews and base it on the merits of your primary application.

If you apply early and broadly, you should be able to land an interview (at the very least) at a USMD school.

Our stats are nearly identical and I received a couple of offers from both MD (low tier) and DO school.
