    Does any know where I can find MCAT and GPA stats for all 28 DO schools. I have the DO Schools book, but it has alllllllll the information except what concerns most applicants MCAT and GPA stats!. Does anyone know of source. M.D's have a very nice MSAR that lists stats and applied/accepted inteview etc.
    Does anyone know where to find MCAT and GPA averages for DO school.

    Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!!:)

    The websites of some the schools provide those numbers, but not all do. As far as I know there is no comprehensive publication which contains these stats.

    I found this data online, but don't know how recent it is. Though it must be fairly recent, since the newer campuses are included here. I'm not even sure where this data came from originally, but I just came across it in a google search. So take it with a grain of salt, until someone can verify the source.

    I wonder if the data may be a bit off though, as I remember recently reading that Western's GPA averages were around a 3.5. So I don't know why they seem lower here in the above list.

    That data seems a bit off to me too. UNE reported on their website the average GPA for c/o 2012 was 3.46, with an average MCAT of 27.

    the data posted is a mix for each school from the past few years
    example the MSU data is from last year while the PCOM data is from 3 or 4 years ago

    here are pcom's 2007 averages taken directly from their website -- "The average class GPA was 3.38, the science GPA was 3.45 and the mean MCAT score was 24"
    mcat is same as posted above, GPA is pretty different

    Thanks everyone.
    rkaz thanks for the list. The lists seems a bit on the low side. I was expecting 28-29 MCATs and 3.5's averages. I suppose i have to go through thier websites to get the info.

    The Princeton review publication lists all of the MCAT/gpa stats in a similar fashion as the MSAR, it has all of the allopathic and naturopathic schools in there as well. It was a good resource for me, and its pretty cheap too!

    Well, they leave out the data for a bunch of schools. Seems like I posted the data from that book a few months ago, too. If anyone finds it, feel free to post a link. :)

    I thought the book was a good investment though. The newest version was released this past October. Buy it here.

    Naturopathic? :eyebrow:

    na·tu·rop·a·thy : a system of treatment of disease that avoids drugs and surgery and emphasizes the use of natural agents (as air, water, and herbs) and physical means (as tissue manipulation and electrotherapy)
    (SOURCE: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/naturopathy)

    ...so now we're hippy doctors?

    Oh my. My apologies; I never heard of naturopathic schools and thought it was referring to DO schools. My mistake.
     
  16. Chocolate Bear

    Chocolate Bear Moderizzle Fo'Shizzle! Moderator Emeritus 7+ Year Member

    No biggie. I kinda figured that was the case.

    I really didn't know anything about them or their schools/admissions stats until I read this book. N.D. seems like a dicey career move to me, but if someone's passionate about it, I bet they could find a nice niche in the right location. I'm always skeptical about efficacy and safety, though, and I know research is often lacking in the CAM (complementary and alternative medicine)-type areas. But for proven CAM methods, I think they can be utilized by both mainstream and naturopathic docs, alike, if the situation calls for them. But I digress...

    This data needs to be wiped off of SDN; not only is it something like 4 years old, it was inaccurate to begin with

    for NYCOM, the GPA seems right but I was told from the admission committee that the average MCAT for the class of 2012 was a 27, not 26.

    I saw you already have the CIB, but for anyone else who's wondering, the average stats for DO matriculants for 2006-2007 are in there. http://www.aacom.org/resources/bookstore/cib/Documents/cib2009toc/2009_CIBp8-12.pdf
    -overall GPA:3.45
    -science GPA: 3.36
    -non-science GPA: 3.55
    -MCAT: 25.5

    It also has the applications submitted/students enrolled for each DO school on the last page, though doesn't say anything about the number interviewed.

    Touro-CA has their numbers on their website:

    Class of 2012:
    MCAT 28
    GPA: 3.40
    Science GPA: 3.31

    There is also a complete list of the schools all the students went to for undergrad...looks like lots from the UC's.

    It's better to have a high sGPA than cGPA. You're fine for DO schools. MD, maybe different story. Get a 26+ MCAT and you're good, numbers-wise.

    That data appears to have been out of date (some were 3-4 years old) then, and even more so now (6 years later). A ton has changed in 6-10 years, especially considering that those years saw a huge increase in competition.
