I'm starting a new thread because I couldn't find one that addressed which schools really don''t take OOSers. I heard from a doc (and UConn Alum) at the clinic where I work that UConn really only takes OOSers if they are superb and are going to add to diversity.

I'm white, female, jewish and affluent, with 3.6 gpa and 33MCAT (whoa, me in a nutshell, wierd). Is it even worth applying? That secondary seems like a pain.


Also, I'd like to open the thread to anyone who wants to post questions about whether schools take OOSer or info others have. Because I know we're all looking for a secondary not to finish. ;)

According to MSAR, UConn interviewed 200 out of 351 CT residents who applied in 2004-2005, and accepted 59. They interviewed 195 out of 1925 OOS, and accepted 16.

EDIT: I meant to say matriculated 59 and 16, not accepted.

uconn accepts about 90 OOSers each year.
it's definitely very tough to get into as an OOSer.

I was an oos'er who interviewed at UConn, really liked it and was accepted. White male, pretty solid mcat but nothing really diverse (unless you count Southern . . . I'm from VA). In the end I chose not to attend, but was more impressed than I thought I would be.

My advice would be to apply far and wide, interviews really opened my eyes to what I liked and what I didn't in medical centers that I would not have guessed going in.
