Hi, im trying to find more information on stats and interviews and acceptance stuff with the university of missouri-columbia.... i did a bunch of searches on here and couldnt find much.

my stats:

missouri resident all my life. graduated from u of missouri - rolla with electrical engineering

mcat - 11b 11p 10v
GPA
ugrad 3.17
ugrad bcmp 3.26
3.68 post bacc gpa
3.30 TOTAL gpa
3.45 TOTAL bcmp gpa

i wont be able to apply until next year because of some other obligations, so i thought i could improve my app with some more shadowing/classes/mcat retake, and i will be about 27 when i start.

i read something real brief about missouri residents get an automatic interview maybe?? is that for real?? how hard is it for a missouri resident to get accepted??

any ideas??? help is very appreciated - THANKS!!

The MSAR lists the average GPA and MCAT for students in every U.S. medical school. Your premed advisor probably has a copy you can borrow.

One word of warning. Your interest in this one school is fine. However, it is very unlikely that you'll get into medical school if you only apply to one program, even if it is an in-state program. The average student applies to 11 schools. Because of your borderline GPA, you should consider apply to 18 schools, possibly more.

Best of luck.

I am a 4th year med student at Mizzou. Your MCAT scores are more than adequate and you have improved your GPA with post-bac classes. You are a Missouri resident. Mizzou is very accepting of non-traditional students (I was one). If you apply early and don't have any major problems on your application you should get an interview. Good luck. Mizzou is a good school with an excellent PBL curriculum. :cool:
