Dear fellow pre-DOs: I am a recently graduated RN who got a degree in nursing to be a family nurse practitioner. However, after a semester of the FNP program, I realized that nothing can subsitute for being a doctor. (I was young, naive, and convinced by a doctor that going to FNP school was just as good). Now, since I wasn't shooting for med school, I'm worried that my GPA will keep me out of med school. I have a 3.1 undergrad GPA (but I aced O Chem II in 1/2 semester in an accelerated science program). And, I got two A's and a B in the Master's of Nursing program. I know I'll need strong MCAT scores to have a chance, and I think I'll have them. I've always scored in the very top % on tests. I've got great health care experience, great Doc references, and I'm going into the interview with the attitude that "being a DO is the only way for me, and trust me, I've tried several different things". What are some of your responses to this situation?
