    Well, get used to not being a doctor, because you're not getting into any MD school with that MCAT VR score, much less below avg GPAs.


    No, I WILL NOT consider any DO or Caribbean schools. I have much respect for any DOs and anyone trying to be a DO or enter Caribbean school, so more power to them. However, it's simply not for me.

    what's the point in giving you advice when you seem to take advice given to you and completely disregard it. Your pre-med adviser is 100% correct and you deciding she's not qualified because you think you are qualified is laughable.

    maybe though, you should stop looking for reasons why your scores aren't good enough and start taking responsibility yourself. then you can figure out why the way you're studying isn't working. my guess is you don't bother reviewing passages after doing them.

    How is your GPA not below average when it is literally below the average for matriculated MD students?

    Be confident in your abilities.. fine... but be realistic so you can identify what you need to fix in order to move on. Otherwise, you're just lying to yourself and wasting your time.

    Good one.

    Gotta love people who ask for advice and then lash out when they aren't told what they want to hear. Like I said, why bother asking for advice in the first place?

    Avg GPAs for MD acceptees is 3.6/3.6; higher in your home state. With 1000s of highly qualified applicants, they can afford to ignore you. Especially with a GPA 4 points below avg, and and with aVR that is below the 10th %ile for EVERY medical school in the country.

    What's your plan B?

    Since you're an excellent writer and all, I figured I'd let you know that you somehow made multiple (I'll let you off the hook for "cause") grammatical mistakes in that post. I'm sure it was the keyboard's fault though!

    dude... hes an adcom... you will likely get the same response from other adcoms at other schools. And if that doesnt work out, I am sure being super arrogant will definitely help.

    Crossposting is against the ToS btw. Next time just wait for a mod to move your thread. Anyway...
    Your GPA is below average and your MCAT is substantially below average. From what you told us, your ECs are substandard, so basically MD=Not yours unless you're a URM. At this point you're less Vegeta and more Krillin.

    Retake the MCAT one more time. I know you said that you really don't want to, but if you really want to get an MD, it needs to be done.

    Study your arse off. I'm sure you did that for your second retake, but this time focus on verbal and keep at it. I don't have any specific advice but if you want to become a doctor, don't quit now

    I dont think the accent would have an interviewer reject him, I think his rejection will come when he starts telling the interviewer how they should run their medical school.

    I love the part where he talks about his "mentally disturbed roommate." Just like how he doesn't take responsibility for his own scores and GPA, he blames it on everyone and everything except himself for not succeeding.

    One of my favorite sayings: "It's not the wand, it's the wizard."
