    Hey guys...I was just wondering if anyone has an idea as to how selective Pitt Med is in sending out secondaries. If you have any ideas please let me know!

    Thanks...

    It was one of the only schools to which I applied that didn't send me even a secondary. So to answer your question, they are fairly selective.

    Hey thanks Geo...

    If you don't mind, I'm just curious what other schools you applied to. I'm just trying to get an idea for what kinda stats they look for.

    Actually, I wouldn't be the best to ask. I applied to 8 schools, many of them were "pie in the sky" schools, such as U of M and U of Chicago that I always wanted to go to but would never know if I could unless I tried. And the short answer is I can't. Of the 8 schools that I applied to I got one interview (at my local state school in Oregon) and was accepted there. As far as stats go, I'm not too impressive (3.45 GPA, 31Q MCAT) but OHSU looks beyind the numbers and I have a bit more when it comes to that.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help,

    Geo

    Hey Geo...

    Actually you did help a lot. It's weird you didn't get a secondary from Pitt because my stats are quite similar. Anyway at least you have an acceptance already! I'm still workin on secondaries. Well thanks for the help...
