    It’s just maybe I was overconfident that I definitely was going to get IIs from all schools due to my gpa. I’m just nervous to see what if the rejection emails pile up...

    Don’t feel bad. Temple likes to have a higher MCAT (around 495). You will have much better luck with other schools assuming you applied to multiple.

    Though your MCAT is very low, you will prolly have more luck at the large schools

    Both my MCAT and GPA is lower than yours and I've received an acceptance. I just want to say, Don't lose hope! Good luck.

    Thanks but I’m just curious to know why I was rejected. Is it because I’m an international student or that I’ve 200 hours DO shadowing so they thought I’m just a leftover premed student who couldn’t get into med school...Who knows...

    I don’t think being an international student really matters in this case. I have over 150 hours of MD shadowing and that did not compromise me in any way. Just take care of yourself in the meantime!

    Personal statement. Something in your file.

    Email or call them back and ask how you can improve your profile.

    Plenty of international students and those who switched from MD/DO/DDS in the program.

    Don't shift the blame. With that GPA you will get in somewhere.

    Like others have said. Temple has screens. Sounds like you didn't make it pass the MCAT screen. Meaning no human probably ever looked at your app. So there is no indication there's something you could improve on besides stats. There are plenty of international students at Temple. Temple is MCAT heavy where as Barry for example seems to be more GPA heavy. Don't worry I'm sure you will net interview invites assuming you cast your net wide.

    I’m not sure. How do you find that out? I tried to look into my unofficial transcript but it’s not listed there.

    Go to Aacpmas and download one of your completed applications. There's a page with GPA breakdowns.

    Why not DMU? It’s a good school, you got scholarship, and the cost of living is low. You could get out of school for a lot less than other schools.

    All 3 schools are great. Know nothing about Temple, but Scholl and DMU are awesome schools.

    DMU was definitely a major contender, but I couldn’t see past living in IA. Just not convinced I’d see as diverse of pathologies during core rotations there versus in a major city. Plus, my partner will move in with me after she graduates and I’m just not sure Des Moines will provide her with the work options she’s looking for (could be wrong here, but I just don’t know enough about the city.)

    1. SGPA: 2.82 (retook Ochem 1&2 in 2016 and aced them both 2nd time. Got C’s the first time. Also retook biochem.)
    CGPA: 3.16

    2. Graduated in 2015. Took first MCAT in 2017. Retook 2nd MCAT that summer 2017.
    MCAT #1: 487 (barely studied.....all I did was read study guides. Did no practice tests...yes, that was dumb of me. I focused more on the material rather than training and learning how to take and survive the test. )

    MCAT #2: 493 took a Kaplan online course.

    3. Shadow hours:

    Pharmacist —1 hour
    Podiatrists—~20 hours
    Pediatrician — 8 hours

    Worked as a microbiology technologist in a hospital lab for three years right after graduation and then quit my job in September to focus on applying for pod this cycle. I’ve only applied to Pod and it’s my first time.

    During undergrad, I tutored traveling scholars, volunteered at the hospital and community center. I also continued volunteering when I was working.

    4. I applied to 5 schools.

    DMU—interview invite and accepted a week after interview
    Kent—interview invite and accepted 2 days later

    Western—interview invite and accepted 1 month later
    Scholl—Interview invite but I declined interview after falling in love with DMU and Western. Scholl was my top choice because the podiatrists I shadowed all graduated from there. Was so positive I was going to go there and they were the last ones to send me an interview invite too.
    Barry—took over two months for an interview invite and that was the first time I heard from them. Lol will be declining interview invite as well.
    Midwestern—waitlisted. No interview invite

    5. Still debating between DMU and Western.

    They send it with your acceptance letter. I know California sends it with their interview invites.

    Weird. I was accepted at NYCPM and didn't receive any financial information, just an acceptance letter and information about housing.

    My GPA is above 3.7, so I don't think that's a problem.

    What was your MCAT? Sometimes you might have to meet both

    I've scanned the thread and it seems that some folks have similar stats and still received scholarships, though.

    Congratulations!! NYCPM sent me a scholarship notification the day after I received my acceptance. Based on their website, NYCPM makes their decisions on Monday's and because of the holidays, they may send you a scholarship next week! If not, I would call or email them just to make sure.

    I don’t want to give my identity away by going into more detail just yet, as there are certain circumstances that may change my Scholl admission status. I will explain the situation after I hear from them again in early January.

    I have no idea, I guess I wasn’t what they were looking for. But don’t be nervous the interview is super relaxed, they don’t try to trick you or anything. You’ll be fine!
