Hi guys, I'm a 3rd year student who is just keeping his options open in case my grades don't quite pan out for Canada. I know the Caribbean is always a surefire option, but I've never considered the US and wonder if I have a shot. My current stats are: 3.1 GPA (first two years), 32Q MCAT (10P, 11V, 11B), 1000+ hours in volunteer EMS, part-time work throughout school, hospital emergency department volunteering, a school-related internship in clinical psychology, and a few other things. I'm hoping I can raise my GPA through this year and next year, but we'll just have to wait and see...at best, I might be able to get an overall 4 year GPA of 3.5-3.6. Soo worst case scenario (those stats with 3.1 GPA): 1) Do I have a shot at any US allopathic schools? 2) Do I have a shot at any US osteopathic schools? 3)If I do have a shot with either, will I have trouble getting a competitive residency with the issues of having to get a work visa (the same as what will happen the caribbean route)? 4)Do I have a shot at MD or DO schools with a 3.5 GPA and the aforementioned other stats? Thanks for any advice.
