Undergrad GPA = 2.7ish. Didn't do a SMP. Was just accepted to Drexel. :love:

(though v. sig upward trend, at a prestigious school known for giving low grades, ~1 yr worth of classes post bac with 3.8+, MCAT>35, a ton of clinical volunteering, a few years of research with pubs)


:luck: to everyone who is still waiting for their 1st acceptance!!

Then maybe there is hope!
(Me = UG GPA = 2.9. Grad GPA = 3.9, all science. MCAT = 34. Worked in both an osteopathic clinic and then a hospital for a total of 6 years. No research. :( )

To the OP: Congratulations!

Since you did attend a postbac, I encourage you to visit thepostbac forums and post in the success stories thread I posted in there to share your story. Hopefully it would serve as an inspiration for students in your shoes.

EDIT: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=295546

If you have some spare time and would like to share your story, post there :)
