1. with that attitude, you don't deserve to go into medical school. go to the one that you want to go to. instead of one that is easy to get into

2. what is wrong with DO? with your GPA, you'll be lucky if a DO school even considers you.

You said that your grades weren't going to get any better, not that guy. You realize that getting into medical school is really hard, right? And that medical school is even harder? And residency even harder? If you're not willing to work hard to raise your grades now you might want to reconsider.

Regarding medical schools, with that GPA your chance of getting accepted to ANY medical school is close to zero. So work hard to bring that GPA up or look at other careers.

No ones judging you, we're just telling you, you shouldn't aim for a 3.0 if you want to go to med school. And if you want a realistic chance of getting into med school you should also consider DO. I mean, better to get realistic advice than have people sugarcoat it right?

If you had waited a while to open up a profile on mdapps you would have been number 10,000 :p

Agree. People post their 3.0 on here and expect other posters to tell them the have a chance at Hopkins and don't worry about backup plans. Sorry, but the reality is that you face an uphill battle with a 3.0. Better to wrap your head around that now and start taking steps to make sure you become a doctor.

I know truth hurts sometimes. But I think truth is better than false hope.

it doesn't look good at all for any allo medical school within the U.S. barring exceptional circumstances

hahaha cleavverrrr dude dontcha know sdn is the place people get told why they should reconsider the field? you can say very little on this site without being told "you might want to go into something else" or "you don't deserve to be a doctor". many people come here instead of going to their school's pre med office. the first statement, while harsh, may be warrented in some cases, but the second, no matter how bad a situation you're in will never be said to you by anyone except people on this website.



use the msar for stuff like this. people have a tendency to be dbags when anyone makes a thread asking for help. you should have taken the easy way out and started a debate on health care, urm status, md/do (which, commendable, you're starting) and then slipped in your question half way down the page. :)

These seem contradictory. Your first point says he should just go the the one he wants to go to (which is like negating the competitiveness of medical school) and your second point suggests he should consider DO even though he already stated that's not what he wanted.
