I went to KU undergrad for 2 years and loved it(too much) which is why I had to leave. however, now i am considered oos. What do you think my chances are for admission? Thanks for your feedback!!
I think this would be easier to answer if you could give more information. Did you leave KU and finish your degree elsewhere or did you completely stop undergraduate at the time? What is your current situation (where did you do those prereq's and when was the last time you lived in Kansas)? Did you grow up in or graduate high school in Kansas? Are you an under-represented minority?
You may be considered by the committee as an applicant with "strong Kansas ties" based on the answers to some of the above questions. If you are considered an OOS (no ties) applicant then it will be much more difficult.
The MSAR that I have access to shows the 10th percentile for accepted applicants at KU for GPA and MCAT scores as 3.34 and 24 respectively. You are already facing an uphill battle, even if you had a much higher GPA. You'll need to show the admissions committee that you have a vested interest in staying in Kansas. The other parts of your application (LORs, activities, life experiences, volunteer experiences, etc.) will likely need to be very amazing to give you a shot.
It is possible but like I said, you will be facing an uphill battle. I wish you the best and encourage you to use to resources on this website/forum to figure out what you want to do and where you want to apply. Don't become discouraged! There are many paths to take and I would love to hear more from you as you make your way through these processes.
