Here are my stats. cGPA = 2.942 sGPA = 3.483 Post-Bacc GPA = 3.867 (75 Units, all sciences) MCAT #1: 30O (V8, P11, B11) MCAT #2: 30M (V8, P12, B10) MCAT #3: 33M (V10, P12, B11) Experience: 40hr shadowing Cardiologist 40hr shadowing Gastroenterologist 2yrs paid at Internal Medicine private practice (Front office assistant, Medical assistant, IT Admin work [currently setting up electronic health records]) 2wks volunteer abroad for medical mission 6mos volunteer at Emergency Department and Physical Rehab at Private Hospital 1yr volunteer at free clinic (front office/lab technician work) 1.5yr volunteer at nursing home (activities office) 2yr research (own project) in chick muscle development 3 poster presentations (1 at a national conference) 2yr involvement with campus initiative of UNICEF (1yr Chair at Large, 1 yr president) 1yr teaching a supplementary university physics course Prior to my post-bacc, I graduated with a BA in economics, and worked in a cubicle for several years. Fell in love with medicine after volunteering at the free clinic, bit my lip and started my post-bacc program, and haven't regretted it since. However, my undergraduate GPA is downright poor, and it has taken me several years to get my cGPA to where it's now. I've applied broadly twice already (MD+DO) with 0 interviews the first time (applied late), with 2 interviews the second time (still wait listed at 1). Disappointed, I did apply to SGU and Ross as a backup and recently finished my interview for January 2012. Am I doing the right thing going to the Carribbean should I be accepted instead of reapplying to US schools?
