    Hey everyone, just out of curiosity, has somebody ever been accepted to either an osteopathic or allopathic school with a undergrad cGPA less than 3.3 and not taken a post-bacc or masters program?

    Yes. I have so far been accepted to 1 school with a 3.15 cGPA and 3.04sGPA. My mcat and rest of my app was great though. Hoping for a few more :)

    Could I ask what your other stats were? I will probably be applying with something similar except a higher sGPA.

    Sure. 35 mcat, lots of volunteer and shadowing hours, letters from comittee and 2 DO's, research experience, work as a lab tech and academic coach, and what I've heard is a fairly compelling personal statement + secondary essays. I would have tried a post bacc or masters, but decided to try and apply without to save money.
