I am a student that is about to enter NYCOM this summer and completed my undergrad in 3yrs through their 7 yr BS/DO program. I am entering with a 3.6 GPA and a 27 MCAT score (8-11-8). I didn't really study that hard for the MCAT but wound up taking the exam twice. Right now I'm very confused if NYCOM is the right place for me. I initially came here b/c I was not sure about my capabilities but I now sometimes think I should have done a regular 4 yr undergrad and strived for allopathic schools. the extra year would have given me time to focus on EC rather than trying to hurrying my academics. I have thought of taking a year off and trying to strengthen my EC's and retake the MCAT. On one hand I sometimes feel like I could be at a better school with a better student body, and yet at other times I feel I should take advantage of my entrance to medical school at this early age. Additionally the increasing acceptance of DO's and their good residency matches is pressuring me to stick with it and make use of the time I have saved. I've heard of many students who've had to do post-graduate work and only then have been admitted to MD schools. Although my acceptance is in at one school I am still confused on what the right thing for me to do is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
