He is somewhat of a reinvention student.

He was a baseball player for a college, had a low GPA (~2.0 to 2.5), but changed paths in his last year and a half of undergrad to Biology. His last three semesters GPA were 3.8, 3.8, 4.0. His final GPA ended at around 3.0. He is currently doing a biomedical masters program and is projected to have two semesters worth of 4.0 graduate courses by the time he applies.

He has the usual extra curriculars, 400 hours volunteering, research, some clubs, shadowing, etc. He also had a job working in an ER doing insurance stuff for 2 years.

If he scores 512-515, does he stand a chance at some MD schools? I already went through everything before so I am trying to advise him on what to do/what not to do. ORM.

Thanks

If his MCAT is 513+ he could receive interviews at some of his Florida schools. However, with his undergraduate GPA he should apply broadly to many DO schools. Where he applies will depend on his actual MCAT score.

Yes, with a good MCAT, MD is doable. No list until we see an MCAT score, and ECs
