I was told in an interview that your bio score on the MCAT is a good indicator of ability to succeed at the graduate level (ample effort included of course). I'm not saying it's ok to flunk the other sections of the test, but supposedly a 10 or higher is a good score in biology. If you feel comfortable with increasing your MCAT then I would say go for it.I went to oakland university and its becoming well known, I majored in health sciences, so u think if I can get it to like a 21 or 22 ill be good? I'm planning on applying right away around august 1
That MCAT score is definitely on the low side. I was told by one of the administrators here at Scholl that the MCAT score they are looking for has increased. Not quite sure exactly what that is but I would try to shoot for a 25 to be safe. Your GPAs sound fine. Put it this way, my class overall GPA avg was 3.2, science GPA was 3.0, and average MCAT was 25. Hope that helps.Ok so 3.31 gpa, over 3.2 science gpa, 19 mcat, research, shadowed podiatrist multiple times, job and volunteer at hospital, great lors
Hmmm... The only time I've ever had problems contacting OCPM was last year around June... The admissions committee and staff are incredibly busy trying to fill in this year's class, so maybe there is some truth to what calibaby is saying. Though, be insistent to the point of annoying. I've left Carla numerous messages before, and she's always made a point of returning my call no later than the next day. But, to the OP, I was accepted to this year's OCPM class 2016, so PM me if you have any questions. Or another creative way would be to find the acceptance thread, and PM every single person on SDN who has been accepted there. I believe shadesofgrey is a P1 as well. OCPM is not represented as well as some schools like DMU. I think cheering for the Browns slightly beats out shucking corn. /QUOTE]
oh snap, this just got real

Cleveland....Cleveland........isn't that that place where that guy made a Decision? Or am I thinking about the home of a fat funny fella' named Drew?I'd rather shuck corn then watch any sports team from cleveland play. You know your city's sports teams suck when its most famous athlete is Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn from the movie Major League.
I was starting to think the same thing. The one time I called Ohio they answered right away.. so I don't see how the OP is gonna come on here saying they take forever to answer. Starting to think troll.. not to bash, but why would someone from California's first choice be Ohio (honestly not to bash Ohio).You seem to be doing everything possible to get anonymous people's opinions instead of just calling the school. They'll help you, just call them. They will answer your questions and tell you what you need to know, and you can be far more sure you're getting good information.
You can see the thread I made asking what my chances were. I put everything down thereHey hisuida and super fiesty, what were ur stats and what did ur ec's consist of??
People think you're a troll because you ask questions that have extremely easy answers to acquire, and then when people actually do answer them, you don't even acknowledge their post and ask the same question again.....First off I've been called a troll before and I'm not,
