Hey everyone,

I've seen it mentioned on these forums that certain MD schools are known to consider the whole applicant to a larger degree than others.

I'm just about to submit my AMCAS app and I'd like to add some extra schools to ease my anxiety (even if only a little bit).

I've put out my numbers before, but a lot of you are probably unfamiliar with my situation, so here's a brief summation-

Freshman year 0.4 GPA over 27 credit hours, academic suspension, worked a year to pay off the loans/parents, went back to school and have had a cGPA of 3.73 and an sGPA of 3.88 over my last 114 credit hours

cGPA total = 3.03
sGPA total = 3.13
MCAT 30 O (9P,10V,11B)

I'm applying to DO schools too and my numbers there are -
cGPA - 3.36
sGPA - 3.60


Does anyone know of MD schools that are known to be more forgiving/more likely to look at the whole applicant?

Thanks

Actually wayne state considers most recent work and a lot of postbac and what not. But they expect that if your gPA is lower that you should have a decent MCAT score and an upper trend and will look more at your newer stuff then older stuff.

I've known quite a few out of staters to get into Wayne State and most of them were postbac students
Hope that helps.
