That's a bold assumption. Weren't you pre-dental and asking about the carribean a month ago? I don't think anyone can consider themselves in at any of these top schools until it happens.cbennett said:I don't believe i will have any problem getting in with my stats and ecs
AGREE, saw too many 4.00 42 MCATS, I am sure I am in Harvard just to see they got rejected from their own state schools. Keep the decision after you got the offers and have the luxury of picking what school best suits you.Law2Doc said:That's a bold assumption.

You misunderstood what I was saying; I meant that it is pretentious for anyone to think that they are not going to have any trouble getting into any given school (regardless of the tier) especially if they haven't even taken the mcats.cbennett said:Thats funny? I dont remember saying i don't think i would have trouble getting into ANY school with my stats. I said my stats are good enough to get into the vast majority of schools and that my stats are certainly above average for USF (majority is certainly not all? my stats would not be what would hold me back at most schools but it would be the luck of the draw(this like i said above is assuming i do well on the MCAT which i am not to worried about concidering i scored a 23 on the ts sec of the dat) And last i checked USF is not that competative of a school to get into in comparison to many others.

It depends on how you define competitive. USF looks for a lot of other characteristics besides GPA and MCAT scores. They really give a lot of thought in putting together a class and strive to admit students that may have lower stats but who in their view, have other traits that are likely to make them better doctors.cbennett said:Thats funny?

I am planning on applying broadly, and i am not worried too worried about the mcat because i have taken practice tests and i am scoring in the 33-34 range currently and i still have another few weeks left. (i have also taken the dat recently(june) and scored very well on the ts 23) I will be hoping for an acceptance but not to just anywhere. I currently would rather take off a year and reapply then to go to a school i did not like. To me, location is the most important thing about a school and i would not even think about going somewhere i didnt like the location of and blow four years of my life.
Are you serious? For every epidemiological study that indicates correlation, there is one that disproves correlation. And the practice of medicine is no stranger to hazardous chemicals. This is classic trolling. I suggest that the OP seal himself in a bubble... unless he's allergic to plastic.cbennett said:I am still thinking of dental and would prefer it over medicine but i have read many articles about increased risk of nuerological disorders due to the chemicals dentist are around (mainly mercury) and my family on both sides has a history of alzheimers so i am very reluctant due to this fact.
Check out this link...as a 4th year currently, I agree wholeheartedly with this, I am afraid. (Having just gone through the new curriculum in it's 1st year. Absolutely awful.) Oh, and I estimate that approximately 90% of my colleagues are in agreement. BS, biased statistic of course, but whatever.Obedeli said:Curious. Can anyone say what USF's new third year curriculum is like?
