    33 MCAT

    total college stats:
    3.45 GPA overall
    3.38 BCPM GPA

    and my last 67 credits of coursework:
    3.81 overall GPA
    3.75 BCPM GPA

    I also have been a member of the Health Professionals Society at my school, have shadowed physicians, and have volunteered for about a year at a hospital here in Kalamazoo.

    My top choices of medical schools are:
    1. Wayne State
    2. Michigan State
    3. University of Michigan
    4. NY Medical College
    5. UW Medicine
    6. Temple University
    7. UIC
    8. Albany Medical College

    what do you folks think my chances are of gaining acceptance to one of these schools?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Oh for the love of God, am I the only person here who didn't make a thread titled: "Oh man I'm so nervous am I gonna get in gonna get in gonna get in? HELP PLEASE... :( :( :( "

    And then these people have a 37S MCAT with 3.979 GPA.

    Stop making useless threads like this. Save that energy for your weekly heroin injections and trips to your psychiatrist's office.

    Your chances look pretty good to me, but read this. Just food for thought.

    Good luck.

    LOL...well I don't have a 3.979 GPA and I was just wondering what others thought. If you don't get into medical school I'd say you could make a career in being an dingus.

    he has a 3.4 not a 3.9


    He has good reason to worry and ask if his stats could get him in esp on SDN where everyone seems to have a 4.0!

    To the OP: You'll get interviews, use it to your advantage! I'm sure something will work out for you, it really is a crapshoot sometimes, no telling what is going to happen. Good luck

    You'll definetely get interviews, and once you get those you can seal the deal.

    I always kick ass in interview type settings...and that's what I figure too, as long as I can get interviews at a few schools chances are I can sweet talk my way in.
