    I didn’t apply to DMU, but yes your best bet would be emailing admissions so they can work with you to find a solution

    I’ve a question: has anyone ever made multiple deposits to schools? If so, did the schools email you at the end to let you know that you need to makeup your mind or do they just rescind your seat without letting you know?

    You can always withdraw your seat from a school if you decide to make a deposit at a different one. However, in most cases the deposit is non-refundable but I think it's worth it if you happen to get an acceptance later at your top choice.

    I was allowed to defer my deposit date until I heard back from all of the schools I interviewed with. Just email admissions and request this, it shouldn’t be a problem.

    The thing is I made 2 deposits to two different schools as I wanted to be sure about my choice, and it has really helped me realise which school I really wanna go to. My fear, my top choice would tell me that they’ve rescinded my seat, and I don’t want that. Do the schools get to know about multiple deposits? Do they notify you before revoking your seat?

    They will not revoke your seat, much less without notifying you before.

    Talk to the school.

    Email or call them.

    They can do more for you.

    Not too late.

    Make sure this is what you want to do. It will not replace your desire for an MD.

    I am trying to get in this cycle for the fall of 2019 but am currently retaking biochem and Gen Chem 1. Everything else is good to go but the grades don't come out until May 18th... Should I go ahead and submit my application or wait until the grades come out?

    What is your GPA/MCAT? You can submit while they are in progress and still interview before grades come out.

    Tough call, but I would say go ahead and apply to the bigger schools now and mention your retakes (hopefully they are both going to be A or B). If you don’t get in just turn around and reapply in August.

    I was averaging 501-504 on my practice and I tanked in real-time. Never count your eggs before they hatch I guess.

    Ill go ahead and apply and see what happens. Only one way to find out I guess.

    That changes things a bit.

    The more picky schools are prolly out at this point. I could see you getting into multiple other schools tho

    Schools with the most seats. Kent, NYCPM, Temple, Barry I'd say are the easiest probably. Although temple has a screen.

    I will be done with a master in biomedical sciences in May. I have a 3.4 science and 3.5 non science.
    But I have a very low MCAT 485. Lots of extracurricular activities and two international mission trips and research

    I am retaking the mcat in May but I am not sure if should apply with my current mcat score. I don’t want to waste a whole year to get in, that is why I am rushing to send everything now before the deadline. I live 10 min from Barry university so I would love to go there!

    I think you should apply. You could still get in. Plenty of schools accept low mcat scores and your high GPA makes up for it.

    Barry especially is known for low mcat averages so you should apply ASAP.

    We have very similar stats!! With my 485 MCAT, I applied to only 2 schools and got an invite from both schools. One of them is Barry!! I suggest you to apply ASAP. Good luck

    Yes, I did! I already put my deposit for BUSPM class of 2023. FYI, I got an interview invite from Barry around 2 hours after my application was verified so I suggest you to apply asap. Feel free to ask me any questions.

    I know I’m late to the game but wondering if it is worth applying... I have a 496 MCAT, 3.4 cGPA, & 3.8 sGPA. 200 clinical hours shadowing MD & DO. I have a podiatrist to write me a LOR

    I’m interested in the schools in Ohio, Iowa, & Arizona. Do you think I could get in one of those?

    If they have seats available (I think they still do), I am sure you will get an interview. Apps are processed pretty quickly so you can hear back with II within a week.

    Yes, you will be more than fine. With those stats, you will be easily able to get in. They still have seats open I believe.

    May I ask, why didn’t you apply MD/DO? With those stats, you’d get into DO at least. If it’s because you’re too late, then wait a year, do research, build your resume & then apply MD/DO.

    Just curious, did you apply to medical school this cycle? Your stats will get you into any podiatry school with huge scholarships, why podiatry?

    So, I did apply to MD this year. I do not want to apply another cycle and believe I will be fulfilled with a career in podiatry. The idea of scholarships is also enticing.
