Any past SMPs from Georgetown have any advice on if they got accepted to any medical school after graduating from the program (the following year, not direct admit during the year)? Will you be willing to post your SMP gpas and mcat? I will be finishing soon and Im a bit worried because I worked really hard in the program but my grades are not AMAZING. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hey! I have similar stats in an SMP and am also applying when the program ends. Do you have any advice/feedback based on how your cycle is going?

terrible. the SMP was such a waste. i havent had any luck at all
Only two kinds of people get accepted during their SMP year: People who already had the stats to apply and people who get accepted to the linked school (in this case Georgetown).

In my class there were several people who had interviews at multiple schools during their SMP year. The reason they hadn't been accepted previously is either because their MCAT was too low, their ECs were previously poor, or their school list was not broad enough. Those people didn't need to go to an SMP in the first place.

The people who get accepted to Georgetown the same year generally have 3.5+ in the SMP by now, have demonstrated positive social relationships, and have some involvement with the school doing research or volunteering. The rest of their app including ECs and MCAT has to be good as well (usually 510+).

Georgetown usually starts sending interview invites around this time to SMP students and they will start sending out acceptances and waitlists in April. Admissions can roll through June and I've even seen them happen right up until class starts.

Hi. I think they meant that they applied after the SMP, so not during the SMP year, and have not been having any luck. If you had any advice for that!

Yes! Says finishing soon but I do not think they applied the year of the program and applied when it ended.
Right, but they said they haven't had any luck at all, which I took to mean no medical school acceptances. If they are still in the program this year then that means they can't have applied for the next round because applications for 2022 aren't open yet.
