Hello, I am a college student who is very much interested in applying to Saba this summer in hopes of gaining admission into the January 2011 class. However, I feel that it may not be possibility for I to gain admittance because I do not have enough of the prerequisites. I plan on applying without the MCAT, Physics and Organic Chemistry II (will be taking Organic Chemistry II in fall 2009). If this is not a wise decision, then I hope to apply in early 2010 for the May 2011 class with all the recommended prerequisites except for the MCAT. Can you please provide for I an honest assessment on how likely my chances of gaining admittance will be? What plan should I follow: applying this summer without the MCAT, Physics, and Organic Chemistry II or applying in early 2010 for the May 2011 class with all the recommended prerequisites except the MCAT? A very brief synopsis of my statistics are as follows: B.A. in Political Science from the University of Connecticut (May 2009) Overall GPA - 3.830 Science GPA - 3.810 Occupation - EMT Basic Volunteer in local hospital Same Day Surgery Department - 855 hours Research Assistant at UConn Health Center Genetics Lab- 205 hours Research Assistant for Gonopodium Research Project - 1 semester Research Assistant for Ascophyllum Research Project - 2 summers Research Assistant for Guadalupe Research Project - 2 summers Biology Tutor - 1 year Excellence in Biology Award - 2007 New England Scholar - 3 times Dean's List - 7 times Phi Kappa Phi Honor Club Member Golden Key Honor Club Member National Merit Scholar Honor Club Member Honor's Note - Economics Capital Scholarship winner Member of Premedical society - 1 year Volunteer at Soup Kitchen - 2 years 2 Letters of Recommendation from Science Professors No MCAT No Physics Will be taking Organic Chemistry II in Fall 2009 OR All the above but with Physics and Organic Chemistry II Applying in early 2010 for the May 2011 class No MCAT This is an extremely important dilemma that I am currently engulfed in. Thank you in advance to anyone who may provide any input on the above request. Have a great day. Note: I do not plan to apply in the United States because of my age (which is a great deal older than that of the traditional applicant). If I were to apply in the United States I would take the MCAT in May 2011 and apply in the summer of 2011. This could be a great deal of wasted time because if I fail to earn a 30 on the MCAT(which is very likely) I of course would find the Caribbean as my only option.
