Let's just say you feel like you have no hope of getting into a med school in the US even after a gap year and your life situation is such that you can't spend 2-3yrs extra after graduation improving your application. GPA 3.35cum/3.16bcmp/3.21DO. No MCAT/DAT/OAT/anything yet. Help!! What would you do? No gap yr and just apply straight to a caribbean medical school? No gap yr and just apply to optometry school really late(march deadline)? Take a yr off and then apply to optometry school? Take a yr off and apply to dental schools? Take a yr off and apply to DO schools.
