    I have been reading posts in all the SDN forums about how the applicant pool is rising. I see people freaking out in the pre-allopathic forum. As if MD/DO schools were ever easy to get into!
    When I was a freshman in college in the 1995-1996 schools years ( 7 years ago), the averages for MD schools was 3.5 and
    30 and for DO schools it was 3.4 and 26-27. Those numbers have not changed in almost a decade whether the applicant pool was 47,000 in 1996 or 33,000 in 2001. So I dont see how things have changed dramatically in that sense. Getting into medical school (DO OR MD) HAS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN A RIGOROUS AND COMPETITIVE PROCESS. I will only question this the day that I hear of medical schools taking people with 2.0s and 15 on the MCAT!
