yes, you will probably get in as long as you have a decent personal statement, a few ECs, and can communicate somewhat effectively during your interview. don't worry but apply early

Two pieces of helpful advice:

1) check predents.com. You will probably spend an hour or so seeing where your stats are comparable.

2) Search function. I know that you dont mean it, but threads like these are lightning rods for old timers to get on the noobs (no offence).

Good luck.

if posts like this aren't made, then there'll be nothing for the "noobs" to search for using the search function. remember, you were new to this whole thing too, you know...


uscbiograd...you should be good to go, but like everyone else has suggested here, apply early. good luck!

Yeah, I know. I didnt intend it to be offensive (not too offensive anyways) but just as some helpful advice to avoid any future trauma.

I am hoping to be accepted to the Medical University of South Carolina.
Thank you all for your input, it is greatly appreciated.
