Hi I am very worried about getting med school like all the pre-med students do feel the same. But I'm trying to relieve myself by searching for more and more hopes and chances to get into med school. Let me tell you about myself. I,24, grew up in Korea almost all my life and came to the U.S. at the age of 18. When I was in Korea, I was a trouble girl and graduated at the bottom of our class. And I went to Community College(CC) in the U.S. took some courses with my few basic knowledge because of what I've been in H.S. But somehow after spending 2years in CC, I transfered to a nice University and got my BS in Health Science and Nutrition field. My grades at CC was 2.98GPA but 2.59 in University. I went to many parties and concentrated on beers in college despite I had to study two times harder than other native americans and even though I was in pre-physical therapy program But anyhow, my overall GPA is overall 2.8. As soon as I graduated from college, I realized what I can do for my future, my career for my success. If I like partying because of loving people and caring people, why not do so by helping their physical and emotional health if I love medical stuff instead of buying them a beer and entertain them? I now stopped partying and I am retaking all the science classes in CC will going to take till the end of this year. I have worked at physical therapy as an intern, volunteer and aide for 6mos. and have 4th degree master degree in Taekwondo and have taught students as a teaching assistant for 2yrs and as a master for 3mos. Also I have experience as a coordinator of an organization, little stupid popularity award in music. I'm planning to take MCAT this Aug. and trying to apply this fall as soon as possible whenever I get all the recommendations and other stuff. I'm also planning to do some volunteer at a hospital. The problem is MCAT. I know I can make my GPA raised overall at least 3.0 and science GPA at least 3.5 by the time the AA receives my transcripts. But my problem is I'm going to take 18 credits this Fall 00'. Do you think they can wait reviewing my overall final records until the all grades come out? Any suggestion on MCAT score for me to be really confident about getting into osteopathic school? Does my terrible grade in University gives disadvantage?
