Ok we talk about You should go to a us school, fine but getting into one is darn hard take the University of Maryland and And then this All the university of Maryland less then 10% that apply get accepted So you are going to tell a person with a 3.0 and 26 MCAT to what? Keep trying to get in US schools? Do you see why I post and play devils advocate here? The min requirements make it look like there is a shot for some of these people but what the average accepted student above says volumes to me, it says that no way will a 3.0 and 26 get into a US school, This is just one school and example but I could with time prove the case that the cards are greatly stacked against getting into a US school unless you have an awesome undergrad. Yes a post bac can help but only if the undergrad is 3.0 ish or better. Thats why I believe sometimes that the caribbean is the answer.
