    Just a heads up-- Make sure you're all checking your spam folders during the cycle especially for KCU. A few people last cycle (including myself) received secondary/interview invites in their spam folder.

    Did you guys answer the question in their prelim question about gpa/ Mcat scores? I might just put not applicable. What about campus selection?

    Hey all! I'm applying here, and I heard they have strict cut-offs for stats. I was wondering if anyone knew the cut-off for each subsection of the MCAT? I'm worried that my 124 in the CARS section might get me screened out lol

    Hey all! Applying here this cycle. I visited the campus and really enjoyed it. I am also very excited about the new medical education center they are building!! I believe the C/O 2023 will be the first to use it! Anyway, I think we can only pre write 2 of their secondary essays. It looks like they have one that changes every year. Good luck everyone!

    Still waiting. This was my top pick.
    TUNCOM might be a more favorable location for me.
    RVU I also have family in Colorado
    DMU may also be less stressful curriculum than KCU.

    Should I be worried I am not receiving these emails.....

    also second question... what were those questions about which campus is better on the primary application then? I thought those were the secondary questions.

    Not sure I'm going to get through the screening --> 3.19cGPA, 3.11sGPA. Got a pretty good post-bacc, not sure they will overlook the sci/cum GPAs. Will wait and see :whistle:

    Thanks for the input! Were you still able to get an interview and get accepted before December 14th? I only set aside $6K for the cycle and I'm already $2K in. My interview in a couple weeks will set me back another ~$800. Just trying to figure out this $2K deposit situation. Lol

    I got through with a 3.0 cGPA - I had a 3.6 sGPA and 36 MCAT to make up for it. If you have a good post-bacc GPA and good MCAT to make them happy, you will be fine.

    I really hope DO is a backup for you, and that you applied to plenty of MD schools.

    I have 25 MDs that im at the 75% percentile for GPA and 25% for MCAT. Vermont requires a committee letter so that makes 24. I can afford at least 20 secondarys plus my 7 DO schools.

    How do they determine who gets secondaries and when? I have not gotten anything and don’t think I’d below any cut offs.

    Just be patient. KCUs stated cutoffs are 3.25 and 501. People get secondaries under that after they review

    Do they have a history of sending out secondaries to people under the cutoff?? I'm a Kansas City resident with a c3.82 s3.91 but a 498 mcat (retaking August). I'm really hoping that 6 years as a combat medic in the army helps me out here.
