I'm applying to several DO schools this year and I'll be taking the 2001 August MCAT. I understand that applications have already started so I'm already behind. My GPA is low (3.22) and my practice MCAT exams range from 23-25. Some schools I've researched have a MCAT acceptance score in the mid 20s so I'm guessing they accept people who have higher scores (of course) and also people who have lower scores. btw, I'll be taking a upper-level science course this fall semester to boost my GPA. I have good relevant work experience -- worked as a research assistant in a physical reabilitative program for 3 years and got one paper published, and I'm currently working as a clinical assistant in the ER at Children's Hospital of Alabama (almost a year now). Hopefully, I'll get a good MCAT score. Sorry to rant. Just wondering what my chances are or if anyone else with a similar situation as mine applied and got in or on the waiting list.
