SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
Thank you for your input!I suggest these schools with your stats:
All 4 SUNYs
New York Medical College
Medical College Wisconsin
Because of your low GPA and very high MCAT it is difficult to compile a list for you. You need to apply broadly to many schools. The GPA-MCAT grid shows you have a ~50% chance for a MD acceptance. Apply broadly to DO schools and I suggest these:
Yes I think I'll be adding the following schools that I've seen on other threads as known for accepting 'reinvention' applicants. Any of these you think aren't actually known for this?Shoot a bit higher - add UCSF, Columbia, Vandy, and Dartmouth.
How many schools are you applying to? If you're applying to about 25 MD and 6-10 DO, you might pick 4 or 5 top schools that like reinventors. I'm no adcom - just a guy that likes commenting on SDN - but you might pick any 4 or 5 of Case, Columbia, Duke, Pitt, Dartmouth, or Icahn. I've heard that Brown likes its own, and that Dartmouth likes nontrads - so you might want to apply there. I don't know much about Cornell, Duke, UVA, or Michigan. Maybe @Goro has something to say. The rest of your list looks golden - it's just a decent idea in your case to shoot high on a few applications.
I agree that my prior list was too heavy on state schools that I'm not a resident of. Thank you for your input!Too many donations on your list. Give the money to a nice charity instead, like the Salvation Army.
Of your list, target:
Albany Medical College
Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science
Creighton University School of Medicine
Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell
Drexel University College of Medicine
Eastern Virginia Medical School
Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University
George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences
Georgetown University School of Medicine
Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo
Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine
New York Medical College
Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University
Rush Medical College of Rush University Medical Center
State University of New York Downstate Medical Center College ofMedicine
State University of New York Upstate Medical University
Tufts University School of Medicine
Tulane University School of Medicine
University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine
Any DO school I can't recommend LUCOM, Wm Carey, BCOM, ICOM nor Nova for different reasons. MSUCOM? Read up on Larry Nasser and you decide. CUHS is too new and appears to be too limited in rotations sites. UIW refuses to post their Boards scores, which is fishy.
As a reinventor, you need DO schools on the list. Start with UNECOM, NYITCOM, the two NY Touros, PCOM and LECOM
Yes they sent us a list that have historically taken many past graduates, and I tried to incorporate that into my prior school list. Will be sure to do this again, thank you!From what I understand, there are schools that know more about Georgetown's SMP than others. Stick to those since you really did well.
