Hi everyone. I'm a new user on here and I am humbly asking everyone for their advice on which out of state schools to apply to. I am from Dallas, Texas and plan on applying to all my state schools. I need a list of about 8-10 out of state schools. I have no idea of which schools to apply to because of my lower than average GPA. Please take into account my background also. I don't have a preference for location. Cost is not really a priority either. I just need to get accepted. I'm pursuing a Family Practice MD or DO. Please list in ranking of what is best to you. Any explanation as to why any schools are recommended would be gladly welcomed. Thanks to everyone in advance! Info on me... Age: 24 Male (Asian) I work part-time 20 hours a week. College background: 2 years community college 3.57 overall GPA in Nursing Major Applied to Nursing school Got accepted. Left after first semester because it wasn't for me and I should of believed in myself and went straight for the MD. 2 years at Univ. of Dallas (Biology) Will graduate in Fall 07' with expected GPA of around 3.4 Total GPA from both schools 3.45 maybe? Science GPA probably 3.3 MCAT: not taken yet. (June 07') I am estimating a 26-30 based on Kaplan Volunteering: Church piano player for 10 years. Volunteer at a hospital 100 hours plus total.
