    :confused: Yea, I am not really clear about the OP's post.

    OP: Did you or did you not take the MCAT yet? Also, are "field activities" clinical experience? We need more information before we can answer your question. If you didn't take the MCAT yet, then it is really hard to answer your question since a lot will depend on your score. Good luck!:luck:

    Grammar is ok, punctuation is poor and details are scant.

    where the heart is***
    wow for a second i thought i clicked into the pre-allo:rolleyes:
    what is happening with the freindliness and maturity on our forum lately:eek: :confused:

    to the OP: it is hard to tell without your MCAT score...but even with it we are still not adcoms to assess your chances for getting into med school. The one and only (unfortunately) way to find out is to apply.
    :luck:

    Sorry about not stating clearly, okay: my mcat averages about 22 and 23
    and I am taking the actual on may 16.

    GPA 3.6
    tutored courses: organic I and II and Cell biology
    Research in Biochemistry
    Volunteered at hospitals
    Assistant in lab set up at my university
    cum laude, Dean's list honors
    my mcat scores are not good, but I just to go in DO.(preferred CCOM)

    Do I have good stats?
    thanks for your comments, appreciated.

    Well, OP, everything looks okay in terms of your GPA and your EC's. What I am concerned about is your practice MCAT scores. They are on the low side of the average for a matriculant, especially for a school like CCOM. I'd actually recommend not taking the actual MCAT in May and taking the time to average higher on your practice MCAT before pulling the trigger. In fact, try to get your practice MCAT to average at least around 28. This will provide you with the greatest options and chances for when you apply. Find out your MCAT pathology and solve the issue. Since you are on the lower side, it's quite possible to see large improvements with intelligent and directed effort. Do what you have to do.

    Good luck.
