I'm a long time lurker on SDN and recently made an account to get some advice. I'm applying to SMP and post-bac programs to improve my academic record (I have an upward trend in the last two years). I already have tons of research experience, clinical shadow hours from scribing...

I'm currently trying to make a decision and would like some input. OK so UMASS has basically accepted me into post-bacc program which is one year long. This program grants me conditional acceptance to their medical school the following year (given I pass the course work). The...
Hi All (looking for actually advise/experience, not a list),
I am currently in a one-year, 37-credit SMP at a new DO school (3rd cycle coming up) in Texas. I had moved to the area due to a military partner and was hoping to pursue medical education again after 3 years out of school. I found...

Hello all! I will be applying to med school in a few months.
I am cis, Latinx and gay. I am currently in MPH in Biostatistics.
Undergrad GPA:3.76 sGPS:3.76 (LOL) I write the MCAT in 4 weeks and praying with every fiber of my soul I will get above a 515.
I'm a Florida resident.
I count myself blessed to have received acceptances at two well-respected DO programs. I would be honored to attend either of these programs; however, it is no secret that MD programs historically yield more competitive applicants for residency programs and open more doors (even with the...
A friend and I were discussing this the other day :laugh:.
He is freaking out because he hasn't received any II so far :nailbiting:.
My response was that there is still hope to receive II because he submitted all his secondaries before Thanksgiving and many schools have deadlines for secondaries...
I recently got into an MD/PhD program that wants me to reply back to them in two weeks. I have other offers that I want to hold on to, and I am scared that if I accept the MD/PhD offer, I will be bound to that school, and thus can't accept any other offers. Can anymore who has experience...
So, my aptitude falls into the science side of things, but I’ve been intentional to round myself out with good experiences. What do you all think, does my CARS score kill my chances? Where would you put me on the competitiveness spectrum?
-MCAT: 512– 131/124/130/127
-BCPM GPA: 3.90 (3.95 were...
So I have applied to both MD and DO programs and have been fortunate enough to receive 4 MD and 3 DO interviews. Given that I am interested in dermatology, I would like to attend an MD program. However, if DO is my only option, I would rather go that route than wait another year and re-apply. My...
I got my MCAT score back recently (507), and while I am a bit disappointed, I want to move on and look at next steps. I hope that you all could help me out with my chances, especially any chance I have with a California school. UC Davis and UCR's mission statement fit mine to the dot...
This is my first thread as I was really hoping to get some advice. I'm in my senior year and looking to apply this Spring to MD/PhD programs. I was originally gearing for an MD program, and I'm still open to it, but I've had some incredible experiences with research (2+ years and tough...
I applied to a bunch of DO schools earlier in the cycle but now I'm thinking I should've also applied MD, and people in my family are pressuring me into applying MD at this point even though it's extremely late in the cycle.
With my stats (3.4 cGPA, 3.3 sGPA, 511 MCAT, ORM, lots of...
Haven't seen any thread for Griffith University MD program 2019. Has anyone from Canada/international been accepted yet? I know they did interviews in June but I didn't apply until the middle of June. Has anyone heard back about the August interviews yet?
Hi guys! KY resident here. My stats are 3.75 cgpa, 3.68 sgpa, and 516 MCAT.
- 220 hours clinical shadowing in pediatric hospital (various specialties)
- 30 hours clinical volunteering in ED
- 180 hours in peer health education (leadership role in this organization)
Please make recommendations on any of my school choices and please add more mid-tier and low-tier if necessary. Also, I'd love advice about my situation and if I should withdraw my application or not due to my late MCAT.

Thank you everyone in advance, SDN is always crazy helpful.
As a reapplicant i was suggested to not send the same letters of rec. unless there are new ones to read as well. I am only a DO reapplicant. I applied MD also, but it takes so long to validate I'm sure it will come before i even get my...
I would really appreciate some opinions on a school list! I'll preface this by noting that I included years because my experiences are quite spread out. (I'm in my mid-30s.)

Hello! I'm assembling a school list, and I have some unbalanced stats. I'd appreciate any and all feedback on these schools. any in here seem unreasonable? Thank you a bunch, and best of luck everybody!
Also to note: I am a reapplicant, but I applied to an exceedingly small amount of schools...
I am an international student from Europe, and I plan on applying to medical schools in the upcoming days. That said, I was hoping you could help me with schools I should apply to. I believe that only private schools accept international students.
