If you have a strong enough MCAT score, your GPA isn't too low for some DO schools.
SDN's Pre-Dental Forum can better answer your second question.
1. Please don't hijack someone else's thread.hello my college doesnt offer majors in scieneces. or a premed programe.so they asked me to to take phycisian assistant programe. to cover requirements to take mcat.i want to get in medical school. so is it good if i go this way.like taking liberal arts and sciences. and doing the above mentioned programe.or i should take a transfer,and go in a premed school. i want to know who will be preffered for medical colleges, a premed . or guy like me. a physicican assistant programe student.and which will be easy.to score up, since i have a 3.75 gpa and i dont want to spoil it. getting in tougher programe...and the second thing is does college reputation really matter more than ur gpa.for residencies and med school admission
Consider that the average stats for those entering DO schools are 3.48/26.09. With your 3.29, I'd have said to aim for a compensatory MCAT score of 28+. BestDoctorEver is correct though, that you'd have a good chance of getting in somewhere with a 27 if the rest of your application (ECs, LORs, PS, interview skills) are all good.how strong are you talking about?
