SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi all! This is my first thread and I'm really to see all the enthusiasm and optimism! I graduated from a top engineering school with a degree in biomedical engineering. GPA, not so good, around 2.9, sGPA 2.5. I got lucky and got a job with a huge global medical device company (goes to show that you can still get a legitimate job even with a low GPA!). I've relocated to Minnesota and am in the process of re-taking science classes I received a C or below in at the local community college. I am finishing up bio + lab and plan on transferring to the University next semester to take more science classes. I noticed on the U of MN medical school website that they only require 1 semester of bio, chem, humanities and 4 semesters of upper science level courses. These are the only pre-requisites listed on their site. Upon seeing this, I got really excited. Originally I thought I would be spending 2+ years trying to boost my GPA but the pre-reqs for U of M(N, I know U of M is Michigan, but Minnesotans call it U of M!). Does anybody know much about the U of M medical school and have any input? I thought that because it was a state school, I'd have a better chance of getting in since I am a resident now especially if their pre-reqs are so much lighter than other med schools. I have tons of clinical/volunteer work from undergrad (and am planning on starting soon again) and engineering/medical related work experience. What do you guys think? I've repeatedly tried to contact their admissions office but to no avail. Sorry if this post is boring! I really would love to hear your input!
