I have done quite a bit of reading via SDN posts and the web. Does anyone have any experience with this? If I understand things correctly......Basically, you could move to Texas, live there for a year, become a resident, apply to a public university under academic fresh start, grades from more than 10 years ago (regardless of schools attended and location) would no longer be factored into gpa/degree requirements, take 90 hours, apply to med school with none of the grades/courses prior to the ten year mark being factored in?? I'm guessing only Texas med schools would accept academic fresh start....not a school in FL for example? Right now I have a 3.0 ugpa, 3.8 ggpa and I'm looking at two years of prereqs and a year to apply. Best case scenario, I'll be able to raise my uppa to ~3.2-3.3. I goofed off from 93-97 and from 98-01 retook a lot of classes and made mostly As, then I went to grad school for an MS. If it meant I could drop the baggage of crap that haunts me from 93-98 and conceivably apply to a med program with a 3.8-3.9....I would consider it. Or am I better off staying put in FL, taking my prereqs (making As of course), raising my gpa ~3.2-3.3 and hoping a FL school will pity me because of my vast improvement and grant me an acceptance? Any thoughts?
