    hey guys,

    i was wondering if anyone could give me some advice regarding my situation.
    i'm a recent pharmacy grad class of '00, working in the area at a hospital as a full-time pharmacist. at work i've been interacting with many drs and i'm becoming more and more interested in medicine. unfortunately, my grades from school are herondous. my GPA is 2.7. i was reviewing through some of the MCAT stuff and everything seemed do-able and if i studied really hard i can do exceptionally well. what do you guys say? would it be a long shot?

    First of all, I'm suprised that you think the MCAT is "do-able"

    You must be a really good test-taker. Well I must say that isn't unreasonable for you to get in. With those stats you probably could get into a DO school. However your MCAT probably can't be lower than a 25 considering your GPA. Your work experience is a plus. Are you a PharmD or Pharm BS. PharmD is a plus. Did you go to USP?

    Good luck

    If you want a full set of MCAT books that Princeton Review uses (almost new), I would sell them to you.

    Have a great day

    clarification:

    sorry guys, i hope i didn't come off as being arrogant when i said the MCATs are do-able. but what i meant to say is that everything looked familiar so if i reviewed and studied it was do-able.

    adam: to answer your question, yes i did graduate from usp with BS in pharmacy. how's your PCOM learning experience going? how did you do on your MCATs? where did you go undergraduate?

    bostongirl22: how did your PCOM interview go?

    Actually I'm going to NSUCOM.
    I was accepted to NSU, PCOM, LECOM, NYCOM
    But I chosse NSU
    PCOM was an extremely close 2nd

    If I get off the waiting list at 2 allopathic school I'm going there.

    Not that I'm MD envy it just that these are state schools and I will save 15K a year

    I'm finishing up at USP in the spring. Onyl 33 school days left.

    Not that I'm counting
