It's your only hope of being a doctor, alas.I am currently enrolled in an SMP with a linkage. I sent in my apps to about 20 DO schools this fall and it’s looking like I am not going to end up with an acceptance. I did have one interview back in September but that ended in a rejection. My fall semester grades were terrible due to having one C in a high credit course. The rest of my fall semester grades were 4 As and one B. Now in spring semester I increased my course load and currently have all As. I am probably going to end the year with a 3.45 gpa which isn’t great. Currently I’m waitlisted from my SMPs med school, but I don’t think I will be pulled off the waitlist.
Now I am trying to plan to reapply. I was wondering how my poor fall grades are going to affect me now that am going to reapply. What next step should I take ?
My undergrad stats are 3.0 sgpa and cgpa.
I have lots of volunteering and experience as CNA. I am URM -AA and have lot of service w/ in underserved areas. My MCAT was a 490 but retook last summer and got a 500.
Is it worth it to reapply to DO schools again?
You need to get insight from your SMP Faculty about your poor luck. BUT, your school might simply be waiting for the spring grades to See if the Fall was a fluke
