SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) First I'll tell you about myself: I graduated with a degree in microbiology from a reputable university last May, and I have hundreds of hours of medically relevant extracurricular activities under my belt. During college, I was that student who wasn't able to put in as much time as desired into my studies, not out of laziness, but because I was forced to carry 2-3 jobs throughout college (averaging ~55 hours/week 1st and 2nd year, ~35 hours/week 3rd and 4th year). In essence, I was stretched very thin, but that didn't hinder me from putting forth 100% effort when I could. I applied very late last year to MD and DO schools, no interviews. I applied to 19 US schools in August this cycle, nothing so far. My current stats are: 2.98 science GPA, 3.13 overall GPA, 23 MCAT (BS 9, PS 8, VR 6). To improve my app for medical school: I have been performing pediatric oncology clinical research at a local hospital as well as volunteering since graduating college. I have been studying for and will be retaking the MCAT on January 28th, and I am also enrolled to retake two undergraduate courses next semester to improve my GPA to 3.23 science, 3.27 overall. Carib MD? You know they say that mistakes in life are only mistakes if you don't learn from them, and I have definitely learned from my experiences and I'm ready to move on. I'm extremely motivated and confident in my ability to excel in medical school and as a future practicing physician. My dream is to practice medicine and I will do my best to achieve it, no matter what that entails. After thorough research, I figured Carib MD is the way to go for me. My university pre-med advisor suggested that I apply to SGU, Ross, and AUC, and she warned against applying to SABA. Due to financial constraints, I will not be able to attend SGU, Ross, or AUC, although SABA's drastically more affordable program is feasible for me. 1. I would like to know if I would currently be considered for matriculating into the Fall 2012 class with my stats if I were to apply to SABA, say, today? 2. Will current SABA students or accepted future students please post their GPA+MCAT for comparison purposes? 3. Will current/former SABA students please share with us their success/failure stories, their residency matches, and just the general experience they had while at SABA? Thanks.
