U of Vermont, St. Louis, Tufts, Jefferson, Rochestor, Boston U., Mt. Sinai, Loyola, U. of Pittsburg, George Washington, Einstein.


I have a 3.4 (ov.gpa)/3.4 (sc.gpa)/28 mcat/NY resident/loads of EC's. I am already applying to a lot of schools so I can only choose 3-4 more from the list above. Thanks a lot.

Also, if timing of application is a factor for any of these schools, let me know since I AM applying kind of late.

I applied to Tufts, Jefferson, Sinai, Pitt (PA resident), GW, and Einstein. I was offered interviews at Tufts, GW, and Einstein, put on hold at Jefferson, and denied at Sinai and Pitt. With Pitt, they sent me a secondary, cashed my check, and rejected me two days after it was cashed! I had a 3.56 and 30. Good luck.

I think Dr. Kermit meant Hopkins undergrad, not medical school.

J.Pearlman-

DO apply to SLU! I applied with a 3.1/32 MCAT (two different undergrad degrees) and was accepted outright this year during my first application cycle. Also, I felt that the administration and facilities at SLU were really in the favor of the student. U.Vermont/Loyola did not invite me for an interview. Best of luck.
:confused: :) :confused:

Isn't Howard primarily an african-american school, meaning if you're not Black or a minority, then your'e chances are very low of getting accepted. This is why I didn't apply there.....if anyone can tell me elsewise, I'll apply there too ( and also.....meharry, rite?)

Just curious, is your MCAT a 30 or a 28? In the title you said 30 and here you said 28. Not that it makes a huge difference.

I vote for SLU, Tufts, and GW. I interviewed at all 3 with a 3.62 and 29 MCAT, and accepted (off waitlist) at SLU and Tufts.

Applied to all the schools on this list (plus 14 more) except Einstein and Loyola. With a 3.5 cum GPA from Stanford and a 30M MCAT (12v,8ps,10bs).
My results:

Rejected pre-interview: Pitt, Boston (took forever to notify me)
Put on hold forever and finally rejected: GW
Rejected post-interview: Rochester
Accepted: SLU
Waitlisted: Vermont, Tufts, Mt. Sinai, Jeffferson

I was an August MCATer with my apps all complete when the scores came out. I think some of those WL's might have been acceptances had I not been an August MCATer.

You do need to clear up the confusion about whether your MCAT score is 28 or 30. That and the distribution could be a factor in which schools to apply to. But based on what you've said so far, I vote for Vermont, SLU, Jefferson and either Tufts or Mt. Sinai. Best of luck.

Hey SMW,
