I'm new to this website and I don't know where to post this under. I have been stressing so much about this application process and I need some help from anyone. I am a Canadian applicant applying to US medical schools (DO and MD). My GPA is 3.68, EC are great, and my interview skills are great (not tooting my own horn, just trying to keep it simple- no problem in those areas). I have been averaging 34/35 on AMCAS MCAT tests. I want to submit my application in June/July. Will I get accepted for an interview/ rejected by the schools before they see my MCAT or will they wait? If they wait, what is the point of applying early for schools with rolling admission? Hypothetically, how low can my MCAT score be to still have at least one guaranteed interview (based on your educated guess, I know nothing is guaranteed). I also haven't shadowed any DO or MD. Will that impact my application significantly? LASTLY, I can't for the life of me come up with a finalized list of schools. I keep editing my list (adding and removing schools). I've found many posts giving lists of US schools accepting (known to accept, not just say they will) Canadians but upon further research it keeps getting smaller and now I have like 5 schools in my list. Can someone please provide a good list? I am looking for middle and low tier schools since I don't want to waste my time with high tier schools. Thank you so much!
