I am an undergrad senior with about a 3.47 cum GPA and 2.8 science GPA. i plan on taking a years worth of post bac science classes after graduating to boost up my science GPA. my stats are average if not below average for someone applying to medical schools. However, as i read more and more on this forum it seems that if i raise my science GPA to above a 3.0 and do as well as i have been doing on my practice mcats 27+ i might actually be competitive for DO schools... soo let me ask my question.. would it be hard for a DO to obtain a residency in general surgery or emergency medicine? i am specially interested in trauma. can someone school me on this? is there anyone here who's obtained residency to general surgery?
