I am 28 years old and have been recently divorced. I have always wanted to be a doctor, but for various reasons (too long to tell here) I ended up going into accounting. 5 miserable years and a divorce later, I have started taking my premed courses to hopefully gain acceptance to medical school. I have always had an admiration for the DOs. For one, my father (who is a pharmacist) has always spoke very highly of the profession. In addition, two of my good friends who have recently accepted residency positions went to KCOM and absolutely loved it. Finally, I am of the opinion that the DO approach is much more in tune with my beliefs (i.e., the holistic, preventative, ect). Anyway, my only problem is with my grades. I only have a 3.0 from my Accounting degree. I have justed started my other courses. With 128 credit hours at a 3.0 it is going to be dreadfully hard to pull that baby up. Do I stand a chance? What if I do really well on the Premed courses? I have a good reason for the grades being low the first time around. Let's say I get a 3.5-3.7 in all of my premed stuff, will I be able to get considered (assuming say a 25 of the MCAT....but hopefully higher). What do you all think??
