I'm waitlisted at Wayne State and Saint Louis. Both schools told me that my references, activities, and personal statement were good. But that my GPA was lacking, and I'd be placed on the waitlist before getting accepted. Back then I had a 3.53 cGPA and a 3.45 sGPA. My last semester at school really sucked. Cuz my thesis project took over like ALL of my time, and I still got a crummy mark (76%, not even a 77%). yea. ah well.Focus on doing well in your science classes. Your sGPA and only to a minor extent, your cGPA are what's holding you back. Pulling off a 3.75 in your masters will open up a lot more doors. Some might disagree, but I don't think the lack of research is going to hold you back either. Even with your stats tho, you should've gotten at least a couple interviews this cycle if you applied broadly enough...what schools were on you list? Also, you might want to think about tuning up your PS. It could help swing things in your way.
I donno I donno.A 4.0 in the program will get you into medical school, probably Tulane for sure, assuming you nail the interview.
I didn't mean that Tulane would be your only option. With a 4.0 you will be looked at across the 'low' tier, and will get some some interviews - I'd be very surprised if you didn't.I donno I donno.
I was looking at MDapplicants and I keep seeing all these stellar profiles getting into Tulane sub 3.5
i donno if the 4.0 grad will cut it >.<
and last year only 4 students out of the MS CMB were accepted into Tulane. 4/35! I'm sure more than 4 wouldve done well in the masters program.....
and could so many have bombed interviews?
I think with that 4.0, you still have some shot at like Albany, NYMC, some Chicago Schools like UIllinois + Rosalind Franklin, then Jefferson, Temple, Eastern Virginia, Tulane. That's all I can think of at the moment, but theres certainly at least 10 schools you could try.i doubt i can apply to any ''low'' tier schools with my non-US status
which ones did you have in mind?
