Mcat 29 B-10 Ps-9 V-10
GPA 3.33 BCPM 3.30
hmm, maybe I should have put my MDapp profile on here...


edit: So I'm finally getting around to finishing my DO app and I realized that I screwed up a part of my PS (the bulk is the same between the two apps). I kinda of ackwardly left off half a sentence at the end when I was talking about my ECs. Ohh, well, life goes on...

Well then the MSAR lies. According to the 2007-2008 version the median MCAT is a 10 in each section, but the bottom of the ranges are:

VR: 5
PS: 5
BS: 4
WS: L (even though this doesn't matter).

Those scores are probably for URM's. URM's probably get an automatic secondary without being screened out.

I was also looking through MDApplicants and saw a few who got the secondary with subscores below a nine. I don't necessarily think they have a hard fast rule for their screen.... idk.

Wake seems kind of random. I had a science GPA below 3.5 which I thought would screen me out but I got through - seems like no rhyme or reason to me.

the formula they use is kinda weird: 1x(science GPA) + 1x(MCAT) + 2x(submitted Vin Diesel pics)

Yes!! I knew that instead of submitting a PS, submitting multiple pics of Vin would get me into the quality schools I long to attend.

Are you out-of-state? Many schools have much tougher screening for out-of-state applicants.

What happens to people when they try to broach the "many people think vin diesel is gay" angle with you? do you kill them? not that i'm trying to broach the angle. just wondering if you kill them.

that's borderline offensive saying that it's just URMs. i highly doubt Upenn or any med school let's people in with 5s regardless of color. maybe they let one person in so please don't generalize it to all URMs. come on, from average of 10 to a 5?

I think most of us have policies of NOT RESPONDING to affirmative-action-related posts. They proliferate if you let them, and the arguments never end, and never make new or interesting points. They just re-hash the same old emotional territory. Usually the mods are pretty good at confining them to the Topics in Healthcare forum.

Is that for-sure? If so, I'm hosed. I've got both semesters of ochem and one of biology at a CC (I was working at the time, for crying out loud! I understand their concerns about quality of education, but most four-year universities don't work around people's duty hours.)

If a prerequisite course is completed at a community college, student must take subsequent courses in that discipline at a four-year college or university in the United States or Canada.

Thats really annoying. I took both chem and physics (and a few other classes) at a community college because I had to financially. We take the MCAT to standardize the "quality" of our classes (and I have an 11 in the PS, despite going to a crappy community college). :mad:

No, I took all of my pre-reqs at my regular undergrad university. I took orgo during the summer so maybe they didn't like that. I know many schools think that going through 2 semesters worth of class and lab in 8 weeks makes it easier, but whatever, my MCAT scores back up my understanding of pi bonds and the Diels-Alder rxn. so it probably wasn't that. It's got to be the low GPA.

I took all of my reqs at a 4 year. The only problem along that line that I can think of is that I'm not done with physics yet (taking physics 3C over summer [UCI=quarter system]).
