i am interested in Des Moines University. But the stats are confusing regarding this school. The acceptance rate is roughly 25%. The average MCAT scores is 24. The average gpa is 3.46. Plus, they have few minorities (10%). I very much want to be a doctor. However, my stats are poor. I have a 3.33 cum gpa in biomedical engineering, 3.36 in sciences, and a 21 MCAT (6 verbal, 7 physical, 8 bio). I am a minority (asian). I would love to go to a DO school, and i am interested in Des Moines University. But I am skeptikal by the school admission standards. 1. Why are the admission standards so low? (even for a DO school) 2. Is this a quality school? 3. How come they accept so many out of state students compared to in-state students? Do people not want to attend a DO school in Iowa? 4. Do I have any chance of acceptance at Des Moines? 5. Is the school interested in recruiting minorities, even those that are not underrepresented? I would appreciate any feedback from current Des Moines University of Osteopathic Medical College or those familiar with the school. Please include your undergraduate stats if you were accepted or are a current student at this school. thanx.
