    I don't go to St. George... but know some people who do...

    I believe the ave. GPA is 3.0 and MCAT scores are around 8,9,9 something like that... although I think you can get accepted with a 2.7 or so....

    I heard is very hard getting a competitive residency for IMGs... what exactly are you guys interested when you graduate ?

    I know the University of Maryland Medical center takes IMGs... cause there is a cool doctor down there that got one in pathology and she graduated from a carribean school...
    ... BUT She 1st graduated from a US vet school before wanted to do medicine

    Accepted with a cum. GPA of 3.60 and highest MCAT total of 23 (see example below). Remember, SGU takes your highest score from each section of the exam from each test taken.

    For example...If you took it twice and got 7, 8, 9, AND 2, 10, 4. Your sum score would be a 7 + 10 + 9 for a total of 26.

    Hope this helps!

    These numbers sound about right. I'm sure that there are few in the "lower set" that are given a chance too. Ross (not that anyone was asking) has a lot of bright people, but I imagine that St. George's is still more competitive and Ross will tend to select for those "diamonds in the rough". Then again, St. George's (I believe) tends to select-out for higher-caliber students up front. Either way you slice it, the best students make through each program.

    Soccerfever,

    If you don't mind me asking, what was your undergrad school? Have you applied to MCG or Mercer?
    Thanks for your reply
    :)

    Soccer Fever,
    Are you from GA? If so, what part? I am from Athens. As I stated on my earlier post, I am finishing my second year at SGU and so far have been very impressed with the education. I have friends at both Mercer and MCG and frankly, they are not getting as good instruction as we are. Having said that, alot of your education will depend on what you put into it, not necessarily how many famous profs you have.

    Slightly off topic, but Dawg MD and Soccerfever, could I get your e-mails and/or ask you some questions about your experiences applying to MCG, Mercer (Emory)? I am a non-traditional applicant from Ga Tech (with a "Tech GPA" -- read "low") and I'm trying to find what range of numbers -- GPA and MCAT -- they will give serious consideration.

    Thanks for your time and good luck at SGU!

    I might see you there. :)

    Can I get some advice. Should I wait to apply thru amcas for fall 2004 or go to the caribs in Jan2003. I have 3.0 overall, 3.0 science and 30 mcat. Any feedback would be great.

    berkleyboy,
    if you are not a urm(under represented minority), and you haven't participated in any oustanding research or extracurricular activities, then i would definitely put more effort into either going to the caribbean, or applying to d.o. programs. not to be discouraging, because anything is possible, but your gpa is low, and most likely will have a difficult time getting into a us md program.

    getting back to this post's central theme . . .
    i was fortunate enough to finally get accepted to a medical school, sgu jan '03. i graduated from uw(seattle) with a 3.51 gpa and i scored a 32q on the mcat.

    as far as residency postions go, if one takes a look at either sgu's match list or just browses through the many post concerning sgu, i imagine that you will objectively conclude that sgu is not that bad, in fact, it most likely will get anyone who does well on the boards a residency that is comparible to a u.s. md graduate, w/ acception to some of the more difficult residency, like ortho, ent, etc. these seem to be a bit more unlikely, but that is how it goes even if you graduate from a top program. we can't all be super specialist anyhow . . .

    as far as island life goes, it sounds interesting, but i get the feeling that off campus is quite poor, more so than lets say some "more" developed countries in south america, like ecuador, or peru, or colombia, but that is just a gut feeling. it is possible that folks who haven't lived in a third world county before might get a bit annoyed and burnt-out because of the inconveniences, but i don't see why most won't be able to adapt and get used to it. i am bit concerned with hurricanes myself, but i want to be a md, so what it comes down to for me is the rather trite phrase "beggars can't be choosers".

    i look forward to meeting some of you folks in january.
