Just found out about this forum and I?ve read a lot of interesting stories thus far. Some have been great. Well I?m going to put out my life story and see what people think. I went to Brandeis for 4 years and didn't have a great time there academically. My overall gpa was just a 2.5 and science gpa was a 2.2. Since graduating, I immediately went back to school closer to home in Texas have been working on completing the science prerequisites for medical school. My grades aren?t spectacular but are significantly better than what I did at Brandeis. I have a 2.93 right now mostly because I stuck with calculus 2 over the summer; otherwise my gpa is close to a 3.2. I?ve volunteered at a hospital for a couple months, and then went to work with a doctor in the hospital for another couple of months. My original intention was to try for medical school once more but I have been reading a lot of posts about people enjoying osteopathic schools. It?s been sounding like something I would like to try for. I am currently studying for the MCAT and hope to do very well on it. My question is whether I should I put off applying this summer, assuming I get a score I am happy with on the MCAT and wait till the next summer and try to raise my gpa even more. Plus, considering my grades what score would give me a solid chance of getting interviews and hopefully accepted later on. Thanks in advance.
