Hi, sry for another do i have a chance thread, but i really need input. So i graduated from VCU in May 2006 after 5 years of undergrad, and i feel that my academic record will be the ultimate stumbling block for med school to be a reality. i did pretty pretty bad in undergrad ie first 4 years..with my GPA flunctuating between either being a 3.0 one semester, a 3.3 another semester and sometimes it goes down to a 2.3 or even 1.5 for a semester. problem was the only classes i was doing bad in were science courses ie the premed classes, but all my non-science courses were B's and mostly A's, with a lot of C's, D's and an even F in Organic Chemistry 2, with 3 other F's in other classes i dont really remember. to even add more fuel to the fire, i have like 8 W's on my transcript and most in my premed prerequisites and science classes. i feel like am at a point of no return. after 3 years of college, including summer semesters of getting D's, C's and F's, and trying to retake these classes in the summer and still not doing well in them, i decided i was done and premed wasn't possible anymore. My senior year came around and i continued taking science classes, but not as a premed, but just to graduate basically. First semester senior year I got a 2.75 gpa, second semester rose to a 3.4, that summer i took another 14 credits and got a 4.0gpa. this kinda boosted my confidence, so in my super senior year, since i didnt have too many classes to take in order to graduate, i began retaking all the classes i did bad in and got a 4.0 both semesters. After i graduated, i took a job and has just been working since then. I recently decided that i really wanted to go to medical school, and found out about the D.O route, and the fact that they do not count the first grade for retakes. so my GPA for AACOMAS according to my calculations would be 3.41 overall, 3.32 science( due to about 13 retaken classes that i did really bad in). AMCAS is a different story since both of my grades would be counted, overall would be like a 2.76 and science even lower...so MD is out of the Question. Am routing for D.O but my academic history (8W's, and lot of C's and D's in prereqs previously) will definately raise red flags and ruin my chances of ever getting in. i recently took the MCATS and got a 27Q. I really have no excuse for my bad grades, except that i was working a lot (Had 2 jobs) in undergrad and averaging ~40hrs a week of work. So do you guys think i have a shot at a U.S D.O program...i really want to be a DOC, but it seems some past mistakes cannot be ever recoverd from.
