    Welcome to the 2012-2013 Underdog Thread!

    Looking for the underdogs list? See the next post or click here on this text.

    It will be yellowperil that will be in charge of keeping the scores updated. Please contact him if you have questions regarding the list or wish to be added.

    Please follow proper procedure by giving your SDN name, cGPA, sGPA and MCAT. If no MCAT, please write TBD. There's also an MDApplicants.com project going on this year for all D.O. applying students.

    Here's some data that may be useful when applying:

    "Please consider your statistics before posting in the thread. Each person has their own definition of what an Underdog is or should be. However, posting that you think you are an Underdog with a 32+ MCAT and a 3.5+ GPA doesn't exactly qualify you as one, and doesn't help anyone who is going to really struggle to get in.

    When posting statistics to share on this thread, please post as like this:
    sdn name- cGPA, sGPA, MCAT
    That way this year we can also ensure everyone can use both the cGPA and sGPA as a reference, as well as the MCAT.

    The Underdogs had great success last year and hopefully this year we can keep it up!

    Last year's Underdog Thread: http://forums.sdn.net/showthread.php?t=820171
    2010-2011 thread: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=736438
    What is an underdog? Formula from last year's thread...
    Formula:
    MCAT/2 + sGPA*10 = Applicant Score

    The science GPA of an average applicant
    The average applicant (according to the 2011 applicant data: 25.66 MCAT, 3.26sGPA) will then have their "applicant score" as 45.43, as per the formula: (25.66/2) + (3.26*10) = 45.43

    The overall GPA of an average applicant
    The average applicant (according to the 2011 applicant data: 25.66 MCAT, 3.41 overall GPA) will then have their "applicant score" as 46.93, as per the formula: (25.66/2) + (3.41*10) = 46.93

    The science GPA of an average matriculant
    The average matriculant (according to the 2011 matriculant data: 26.51 MCAT, 3.36sGPA) will then have their "applicant"score" as 46.855, as per the formula: (26.51/2) + (3.36*10) = 46.855

    The overall GPA of an average matriculant
    The average matriculant (according to the 2011 matriculant data: 26.51 MCAT, 3.48 overall GPA) will then have their "applicant"score" as 48.055, as per the formula: (26.51/2) + (3.48*10) =48.055

    Well it has already been made :) Hopefully tomorrow I will be a 3.22sGPA/33+MCAT applicant. One year ago today I was a 2.65sGPA/28MCAT applicant (though I didn't actually apply 1 year ago).

    it's kind of funny to think that i would have been an average~above average applicant 3 years ago.

    sigh

    i'll go back to crying myself to sleep now.

    I'm going to start this just to make sure it goes correctly. Whoever goes next feel free to delete my name/stats since I apparently don't qualify as an underdog even though I feel like one.

    I think this needs a revision. We can't say sGPA alone is what matters for admissions. We need to account for cGPA too.

    Mfas you need to live in the mcat prep forum. I don't think you'll be accepted with anything less than a 30. But you're a true underdog here, I wish you luck.

    yellowperil, you would need to continue updating the front page of this thread with the stats that people are posting. Wish everyone good luck!

    Dr.Willy from last cycle also had less than 3.0 GPA, but got an above 30 score and managed to get multiple interviews and acceptance. Good luck on your MCAT!

    cGPA: 3.20
    sGPA: 3.20
    MCAT: TBD (June 21st)

    These numbers are with one retake. : /

    Crazy to think by this time next year my sgpa will be 3.5+ (if everything goes to plan)

    Good luck everyone.

    If my MCAT score is similar to my practice scores, you and I are in the same boat.

    Crazy to think that the underdog threads are now moving on to the 3rd year. Look what we started...

    Anyway, good luck to this years applicants.

    Thanks... I look above average, but that sGPA includes a bunch of retakes and w's, and not the strongest upward trend in the world.

    He had a 3.14 Cgpa and a 2.96 Sgpa, but he also had a 33 on his mcat. His Sgpa was low but the mcat compensated for that.

    29 on the mcat will doubtingly compensate for a rocky start/past. Either way I have no doubt that you will be able to get into a mid level DO school like LMU or LECOM and probably have a decent shot at the top tier.

    I was going to, but I think I'm going to give myself more time on the Mcat ( Doing the 120 Day method starting June 1st ) and take a gap year instead. Hopefully in the meantime I can abuse my university into letting me take unrestrictive amounts of graduate level biology and neuroscience courses to prep me for MS-1.

    I took a gap year (not by choice) and took some graduate level physiology classes and such. My university didn't have an issue and adcoms liked it. When are you planning on taking the MCAT

    Underdogs often get the best mcat scores; we know what it's like being on the bottom so we become motivated to hit the top.

    The mcat forum is typically people with underdog gpas working their balls off to make their mcat amazing enough to compensate for their gpa.

    Were all going to rock the mcat guys, and seriously once I walk through the doors to med school my days of being lazy/underdog in my class are def over.

    I wouldn't say that underdogs are lazy... thats what gives people the wrong impression and underdogs a bad name.

    not saying the underdogs are lazy. Im saying I was lazy. Thats why I became an underdog due to my own reluctance to work hard.

    I think underdogs are the ones that often work the hardest. Ive spent over 500 hours studying for the mcat.

    I'm thinking September or maybe October. And yah, I don't know the biology department at my university is really odd, mostly because I feel like our courses are split up between the medical school campus, NIH graduate training, and IBBR training. But yah, hopefully I can at least get embryology and histology out of the way. And hopefully undergraduate pathogenic microbiology and immunology will be decent prep.

    Underdogs on SDN often get high Mcat scores.

    I feel special for being mentioned in this thread already lol My MCAT really did save my ass. I got into a school that people believe add more weight to the MCAT over GPA (I believe it)

    Good Luck guys. Best advice is to have all your stuff together and ready to go EARLY. It really does help when you are an underdog.

    I really like this formula for underdog calculation since it incorporates both cGPA and sGPA.

    Don't even bother with those at this point. Go into the application and fill it out. It will give you the cGPA and sGPA. For some reason, one of the spreadsheets gave me .05 less than the AACOMAS. I went crazy for like 3 hours trying to see if I made a mistake, but apparently I did not.

    So if i just fill out all the coursework section of the AACOMAS application, it will immediately show me my calculated GPA?
    The reason i wasn't sure if this was true because i see people on SDN always asking how they can see their GPA on AACOMAS...do you think they are referring to their verified GPA?

    I used this calculator and it was pretty spot on as long as you remember to convert quarter to semester (if you were on quarter system) and to really understand which classes count towards sGPA and which don't. Hint: look at the AACOMAS instruction booklet.
