So I applied to 5 schools, Michigan, Minnesota, OHSU, Nova and Marquette. Got rejected from Nova almost immediately, and have yet to hear any decisions from any of the other schools. Application was mailed 7/16. My stats are:

21 PAT/20 TS/21 AA
3.4 BCP/3.48 Science/3.52 Total
Over 200 volunteer hours
Numerous clubs and student organizations
Over 130 hours shadowing

I know my GPA is a bit low, but I thought I would have at least one interview by now. Anyone else in a similar position?

I suggest adding more schools.

Being a Minnesota resident, are there any specific schools you would recommend with my stats? Also, isn't it getting a bit late to add more schools?

If your from Minnesota, OHSU isn't the best school to apply to since they are state/WICHE fyi

You should have applied to more schools, and as far as your gpa goes, its not low at all.

Hey! I'm a MN resident too and I haven't gotten an interview at MN either. I have a little lower DAT but a higher GPA. I'm hoping they are still sending out interviews...

As far as applying to other schools, maybe Iowa or Creighton? Both schools like Midwest kids. Or maybe case western, but I think they are done giving pre-dec interviews.

I am no expert but I think your stats look really good! Hopefully we both get MN interviews!

I plan on applying to Iowa, but Creighton does not accept AP credits. I do have advanced coursework in Chemestry though, which is where I would use the AP credit. Tried calling today, admissions office will not be answering until the 19th. Anyone have any insight into this issue?

What's your residency, if you don't mind me asking?
