I'm applying to 29 MD schools this cycle. I have all the hours and unique experiences. I have a 3.8 uGPA and 3.7 sGPA but I joined a SMP program and had a family member die my first semester causing me to have two Cs. I've never gotten a C before in all my academic education. The next semester...
Hi everyone happy new year!
Looking for advice on how to spend my gap year(s), fixing holes in my app, and if this post-bacc plan is good.
One main issue is grades, especially sGPA, so thought I'd do a post-bacc in my city? The undergrad classes this post-bacc offers are mostly classes I've...
It is the first time I ever post on a forum website, much less a forum site dedicated to aspiring professionals. Let me just start my story, and say that I will be overwhelmingly honest.
I started community college back in 2015, I stayed for a few semesters in college but quickly...
Hey guys I was wondering if you could give me any advice on how to improve my application for this cycle. I am a non traditional student and had to take a few pre-reqs to be considered last year. I applied last year and got interviewed and waitlisted at tennessee and also waitlisted at UF...

Okay, so I've recently started undergrad at a well-known university, but I'm a non-traditional student that's 24 years old. So far, I've only taken 8 courses, but have made A's in every one - some higher, some lower. I've started volunteering, will soon be switching jobs to something more...
Attached is a screenshot of my undergrad grades. I still have to get through virology, anatomy, organic 1&2, and physics 1&2. I have a ton of bad bio grades because my first two years of college I was lazy and didn't take it as seriously as I should have. Other experience includes ~2000 hours...
I attached a screenshot of my current transcript with the grades I've earned so far. Obviously I'm not getting into medical school with these, although that is my ultimate goal. My cGPA is 2.88 and I know my sGPA is lower but I still have organic 1&2, physics 1&2, anatomy, virology, and calculus...
Sorry for the long post but I really just need advice!
I'm going to be a Junior at Tulane in Fall 2018. I am a neuroscience major. I had a very rough past semester (second semester sophomore year) because of extenuating circumstances (had to work extra hours because mom lost her job). My GPA...
Hello! I just finished my 2nd year of undergraduate as a Cell Biology and Neuroscience major. Came to college ready to go to medical school and once I got here I couldn't really do well in school no matter how much work I put in. Got a C my first semester, then I decided to work even harder but...
I am an upcoming college sophomore. My freshman year went horribly--academically. My first semester, I took 12 hours and dropped introductory chem. I ended up with a 3.2 and 9 completed hours. My second semester I took 16 hours, dropped introductory chem again, and ended up with...
I was enrolled at a university for 4.5 years and accumulated a 2.33 gpa. My last semester at the university, I had many personal problems the affected my grades and ended up failing 12 of the 16 credits I attempted. I decided then that I needed time away from school to mature as a student before...
Hey guys. Sorry if this has been asked 100 times, I just didn't see any posts really similar to my situation. I want med school and I want it bad. Currently, I am in nursing school. This just isn't what I want. I think I would be content with my life if I stayed a nurse, but it's not what I...
This is my first time posting so here it goes. I'll try to keep it concise.

Hey whats up guys, so I'm in a bit of a pickle, and would appreciate any advice.
I took the DAT 7 years ago, did good in sciences, but had 17's in QR and RC. Also had a 3.04 GPA-o and 2.77 GPA-s from undergrad. Needless to say, didn't get it. Moved on with life. Then did 11...
Hello everyone, this is my first forum, and after years of looking at everyone else's post that weren't exactly answering my question,... I decided to ask my own finally.
1.) I am a Junior in Biology minor Nutrition Pre- professional. I am currently taking the MCAT in June on the 29th and have...
I am new to these forums so please bear with me as I write my first post on my situation. Before my spring semester, I wanted to determine my problem areas that plagued me my first semester and recover properly.
Here's my situation:
I took 14 credits my first semester and received a 3.1...
I am currently a PGY-3 radiology resident. I wanted to start a thread to collect the worst pieces of advice people have personally received with regards to applying to medical school. This could be anything from where to apply, specific experiences, bad test advice...the more ridiculous the...
Im am currently am a junior in college and I have had MANY bad grades in my science classes. I recently transferred to a different school and thought I would be better since I have learned from my mistakes of studying in the past. However, I just looked at my microbiology grade and got another...
So, being stupid and a freshman in college with a weak math background I decided to take pre-calc in the summer as a 6 week course and ended up getting a D- in the class. I am obviously going to retake it, and my school has a policy on replacing your grade with whatever new grade you receive...

nontraditional applicant looking for advice
I'm currently an undergrad (going into 3rd year) at Temple University, PA. I don't know if this matter has been discussed or not but I have a HUGE concern on my undergrad science grades and GPA (see attachment). I know it doesn't look really good but should I retake Biology 1 and...
Hello friends! It is the summer before my senior year of undergrad, and I just wanted to make sure I'm doing everything I can so as to stay on the path to getting into DO school (it's so easy to forget big things when you don't ask for second opinions :cat:)
My background/future game plan:
Not sure where to begin, as this year has thrown me through a loop.
I started off this last year a sophomore at a smaller state school in my home state, I was a member of the Honor’s Society and my GPA was 3.75.
This year I had some health issues that greatly impacted my school, I went back...
I used to attend one of the UC school (Bioengineering) but dropped out after a major depression strike. While i was attending i was able to manage 2.9 gpa in both science and pre-pharm prereq. Recently I applied to a community college to start over and retake classes after taking a year...

Hey SDN... I'm finishing up my freshman year and will end up in a pretty bad spot (around a 2.5 gpa). Came in as a business major, ended up becoming very ill at the end of the semester and ended that with a 2.3. Started Bio major second semester, will probably end up with a 2.5-3.0.
I posted this on the premed subreddit with little (no) response, so I thought I would look for advice here. I appreciate any feedback you could give me.
This is going to be a little long, though I'll try to keep it as brief as possible and give you what I know up front. MCAT 2/3: 515...
I'm typing this on my phone, so I apologize if it is written poorly:
