    If you are comfortable posting your stats for others to view, please do. It would be interesting to see a compilation of stats for those who have been accepted to at least one school (name the school if you like). It will give those of us who are getting ready to apply something to shoot for. And Congratulations on being accepted -- your work has finally paid off.

    To start, I will tell you that numbers don't mean anything. The admission process is so random, but if it provides some assurance for you...........
    Undergrad @ NY Institute of Technology
    Major: Life Science
    Minor: Chemistry
    Concentration: Biomed. research (OMM and its effects on Parkinsons)
    Cum. GPA: 3.4
    Sci. GPA: 3.3
    Non-Sci GPA: 3.8
    MCAT: 24
    Volunteer work/shadowed a DO for 6 yrs.
    Got letter of recommendation from premed committee and a DO (highly recommended).

    Accepted to almost all schools I applied (waiting to hear from 2 more). Most likely going to attend UNECOM in the fall.

    My numbers were not great at all, but if you can get an interview, be yourself and know why you want to be a DO or MD. You should be fine........Good luck!

    Undergrad @ mid size liberal arts univ.
    Major: Chemistry
    Minor: Biology
    GPA 3.55
    Sci GPA 3.67
    MCAT: 25 7V,8B,10P (first try 19)
    Volunteer work, comm svc,extracurriculars, shadowed MD & DO (DO shadowing is most important to get letter)good letters from professors. Applied to 5 DO schools, got into my top choice, NOVA, and withdrew my app at the other four. At my interview they seemed very impressed with my grades??? To me they are not that great!! Also that I improved my MCAT 6 points (thanks to Princeton Review). Good luck, hope this helps. If you get an interview be sure you know about osteopathy.

    3.45 cum. GPA
    3.55 non-sci
    3.40 sci
    29 MCAT 9V,11P,9B,W-R (2nd time, 1st time was 9V,8P,7B, W-Q)
    I'd list extracurriculars, but you only asked for stats [​IMG] Although there was nothing I hated more during undergrad and especially at interview than being asked my stats, I have to admit that the gossip in me always liked to hear those of others. Sometimes hearing them is helpful, and it provides reassurance. So, under my alter ego, I provide reassurance.
    Applied: 14 schools
    Secondaries: 13 (sent back 12)
    Interviews: 7 offers, went on 5 of them
    Acceptances: 3
    Waitlists: 2
    Rejections: 1 w/o secondary, 1 with secondary
    I withdrew my apps in Dec. when I decided on a school. Good luck to you!
