I think this thread is better suited in the WAMC forum, you'll get loads of better answers there. For now, @Goro any thoughts? GPA is great but MCAT is low.

DO? Pretty good.

MD? Highly doubt it.

Your MCAT says you are at risk for failing out of Medical school and failing your board exams

Did you finish your degree? If not, it looks even worse on you. The U.S. And Canada have some of the most rigorous medical education systems in the world. If you couldn't hack it at a Middle East program with lower requirements, then how will you be able to handle a U.S. MD program?

ISIS?

Different story then lol just see how the cycle goes. Apply mostly DO and be sure to explain why you quit the program. Also, you may have to become a U.S. Citizen for DO programs. Look into it just to be safe

Apply broadly to DO and you should get some interviews. You have virtually no chance at MD so I would not waste my money and use that to apply to all the DO schools. Good luck!

Chances only fair for DO. Auto reject at my school and at least several others. Even LUCOM has standards.

Chances are 0 at MD schools.
