I was going to post this in my last thread, but I forgot so I am making a new one. I did a search and I cannot find any resources that can help me find GPA and MCAT for matriculants into osteopathic schools. MDapplicants.com, from what I am told, is not always reliable, and does not have a lot of osteopathic school students on it. Does anyone know where I can find this information. I have reviewed the threads and found random posts of a few schools and a few scores, but I am looking for one place that puts all of the schools and scores of the matriculants together. I know I am starting to ask a lot of questions but it seems like the cycle is quickly approaching. Thanks again.

Also, how are the gpas calculated? At my school there are no minuses, only pluses. For example, A = 4.0 B+ = 3.5, Is this how they are done?

I think usually a minus, like an A- for example, would be a 3.75 or 3.8...when you fill out the accomas application I think it automatically converts for you. You just choose the grading system your school uses and enter the grade. I could be wrong, but I think that's what I did. Then your gpas will be calculated/totaled accordingly.

Usually they have some sort of class profile on the school's websites. I really don't know if there IS one reliable place. You just have to peruse the websites. Also, the Princeton Review's guide to medical schools you could find at a bookstore has some osteo info.
