In addition, Ross is the ONLY Carib. school that is OFFICIALLY approved in Texas (Even SGU is not on their list). Please look at the following link:
Hope this thread isn't dead
I m graduating in November but my GPA is pretty crappy (2.3) and I havent done my MCATs yet (possibly in Jan) but I m still aiming for Med school and Caribbean is sort of my only option.
Uni was just a bad time for me and I hope to redeem myself with the chance.
Any recent updates on St Georges requirements (thats what Im aiming for)
I spoke to the representatives from there and they tell me they dont really have minimum grade requirements to get in hence I am a little confused of my chances
2.3 is going to be tough at SGU
I have similar stats GPA - 2.83 (pre-med courses 2.2, eek) MCAT -24 from Princeton. Lots of ECs, volunteerwork, etc.
Would really love to go to St. George's - do you think this is viable at all?
How much easier is it to get into the January class?
You got into Princeton and ended up with a 24 MCAT? I could understand low GPA due to ivy league grading but MCAT is standardized. My, how the mighty have fallen....
Not to start a verbal war, but I heard (on SDN) Ivy League schools allow you to drop without penalty deep into the semester. That doesn't necessarily mean easier but it does mean pumped up GPA's. I would've liked to have went to Yale just as much as the rest of them. Ivy leaguers, please verify or reject.
I got 2.81, i'm currently taking more courses after graduating as a second degree now (just in case, and so far I'm getting close to 3.8) and my mcat score is 31. Any suggestion to what I should do?
Caribbean? Any US schools you could recommend? What about European schools?
well I'm a Canadian student, and I realize it's really hard to come back to Canada if I go out of the country. At the same time, i realize that my gpa at the moment is garbage for any university to accept. So I am considering SMP now, DO or even the caribbeans. Any suggestions for institutions to apply?
Is it ok to bump an old thread?
What are my chances now with a 3.1 gpa, science gpa same I think, and a 31 MCAT?
I'm taking classes post-bacc starting in a couple weeks, some upper level science ones.
Should retake the MCAT? (I have time)
