Hello everybody!

I was just wondering what others thought about my chances at an acceptance to a POD school.

GPA: 3.1-3.2 (I have one more semester, graduating in May with a BS in Bio)

MCAT: 21P (retaking in January)

EC's:
-Plenty of Volunteering in an ER and for the Red Cross
-Rowed varsity crew freshman year of college
-Letters of rec from professor and an MD (still have to shadow a Podiatrist)

Other:
-WI resident

Thank you very much!

Hello fellow WI resident,

Just to let you know all podiatry schools are private, so state of residence will have no bearing. With that stated, I think you have a good chance at admittance at some school. Boosting your MCAT score will open many doors. Apply widely and you will be fine.

Thank you very much for the post!

I have heard that there are schools (DMU) that won't take any MCAT below 22. Is that correct?

Hmm, I got an interview invite to DMU and my MCAT is lower than a 22.
