Hi,

I am a URM and my stats are 3.8 GPA and 24 MCAT :(. I have lots of EC's and I have volunteering and shadowing experiences. I have also participated in research. What are my chances of getting into a florida MD program? I have applied to all florida schools and the medical college of georgia. So far I only have interview invites to FSU and MCG. I'll go anywhere that accepts me but I really want to go to UF.

Do you guys think I have a shot at getting into med school?

Thanks
I mean maybe... you do have interview invites so just try to rock your interview... With that being said, I know people with 3.9's and 32 MCAT that didn't get accepted anywhere. Its a lot more than just the stats. What are your EC's? You may need to gear up for next year and retake that MCAT

So Im a non-traditional applicant. cGPA 3.14 sGPA 3.21 MCAT 31M (7p 13v 11b). Since i graduated Ive been working in a Lab and have a couple presentations under my belt and paper on the way. Ive got about 100 hrs of volunteering in a hospital ED, and im applying to SMPs as I type.

You'll probably want to start your own thread. You should also include whether or not you are a URM and elaborate on your ECs. Assuming that your ECs are average and that you're not a URM, your chance at a MD acceptance is about 28%.

no, Im not a URM. Elaboration on ECs? I worked all through college, volunteered at the nearby hospital for a time before I had to pick up more hours at work. Other than that and my current employment in a lab, theres not much else to say. Where did you get the 28% number anyway? Thats....specific.

The AAMC data for the MCAT and GPAs of applicants can be found here. Since the percent of applicants accepted is displayed for a range of MCAT scores and grade points, you could try prorating the chance of an acceptance based on your specific numbers.

God, that one white kid with the 2.0-2.2 GPA and 24-26 MCAT must be one fly fella, or have very rich parents.
