    Did you get rejected from US DO schools? ounds good for carib schools. St. G may not be a 100% guarantee, but the others should as long as you apply early.

      Retake the MCAT and apply to DO schools.


      MCAT score is not the problem. The problem is the GPA. The GPA is sub par DO standards. I think one of those 1yr medical science track grad degrees would be a good option. Do that to boost up that GPA and you would be in for DO school. If the OP retakes MCAT and do 1 yeat grad degree well, MD is a possibility, especially if the OP is a URM.

        Unless you're not comfortable with being a DO. Which is one reason why I am in the Carib.

        I feel ya on the MD. I can not bring myself to apply to DO as a backup.

        I will try US MD for two cycles and look for "da caribbean mon" after that!

        No offense to those that are cool with it. I just want a MD after my name. I am an initials *****! :D
