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.

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)

What's this "we" business?! The naturopathic schools are in a different section of the book than the DO schools.

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...

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.

I have a general question. If my cGPA is 3.26 and my sGPA is 3.7 (honours in biochemistry), does this somewhat make up for my low overall GPA?

I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me with this question

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.
