My advisor instructed me not to apply to Western University today, saying it is a very hard school to get into. My reaction was that I thought all of the DO schools were generally hard to get into, and there are so many underlying factors to gaining entrance that it is pretty hard to determine what makes a succesful candidate. That pretty much has stalled my motivation. I am at the point now where I am reconsidering applying at all. My stats are as follows: 3.5 GPA env. engineering, ER volunteer experience, other volunteer experience, working for EH&S department in large company, military experience, 25 MCAT (10 VR, 9 PS, 6 BS, O). Anyone have an honest opinion? Is it worth the money, or should I take the MCAT again and wait till next year?
