hello, i am brand new to this, this is my first message here. i am going to apply to osteopathic schools for entry into fall 2000 and would like other people's opinions as to my realistic chances. some bits about myself: i'm 24 and have been working as a physical therapist for 1 1/2 years, trained specifically as a spine specialist. as such, i have extensive direct patient care experience and knowledge of today's health care environment. undergraduate gpa not impressive, about 3.2, but graduate gpa in master's program in PT so far is a 3.9 and i just got A and A- in summer organic chem (which i just finished)... so basically i have turned my grades around since having matured after graduating college. i have lived in 5 countries (grew up primarily in puerto rico), speak 3 languages, and thus can communicate w/ many different kinds of people. basically my motivation for applying to osteopathic schools is that i have begun to feel limited by my profession and would like to become independent in my decision-making as well as enter a field where i will feel more challenged. i will be taking my mcat this august. because of my poor undergraduate grades, i am unsure where i stand as far as chances of getting in. i am just looking for any opinions or any bits of advice. thank you.
