Hello everyone, I am new to SDN but I am at a bit of crossroads right now and I figured I could come to you guys for some advice. So anyways, I just graduated from UCR with 3.3 overall gpa and 3.3 science gpa as well. My gpa does show a positive trend. I took the mcat once and got a 23 (yuck!). My extracurriculars include being a founding member of Phi Delta Epsilon at UCR, volunteer experience at multiple hospitals, I am apart of various clubs, research and I am currently an ER scribe. I know my gpa is nothing special and my mcat is terrible but I really want to go to med school and I am just not sure what the best option for me is. First, I was thinking of applying to Caribbean med schools such as St. George, AUC, and Ross but I have been told going to these schools will really limit your options in the future. On the other hand, I would be able to start much sooner if I don't decide to pursue going to school in the states. So my question is should I just apply for the caribbean and hope they accept me or do I actually have a chance of making it into a medical school within the states? And if i do have chance, which schools should I apply to and what would be my best course of action? I know I would obviously have to take the mcat again but should I look in to postbaccs, masters, etc? Thank you to whomever took the time to read and all help is much appreciated!
