Could you post your stats, please :)

Recommended Posts

MUSC is my #1 choice and I'd love to see your stats if you are student now or if you've been accepted.

 

I'm wondering how my stats compare (I don't really think I have a chance!) I'm sure it's highly competitive to even get an interview!

 

I'd really like to know your

Cummulative GPA

Science GPA

GRE

Prior med experience

You have a better chance than I do!

 

Our GPA's are very similar:

GPA 3.57

Science 3.00

GRE 1260

 

I will have around 700 hours as a nurses assitant for a PA and a Pharm Tech.

 

Are you a SC resident?

Hi, I'm from SC and MUSC is my #1 pick too. I don't think I have a great chance of getting in this year, unless I do really well on the GRE--which I'm taking in June. I'll be a senior at USC in the fall, and here are my stats:

 

GPA 3.65

Science 3.2

and I'm starting to volunteer @ the hospital and shadow a PA in the next couple of weeks...for the rest of the summer/school year

 

Any advice??? I'm applying this summer/fall anyways, just to at least get my 'foot in the door' even if I don't get in anywhere.

annabug: I am not a south carolina resident -- i am from RI but it sounds like that's not a big problem there. i am applying in their first cycle but that still puts a potential interview in late november -- months after others programs -- which is annoying.

 

steppjm: i don't know why you don't think you have a chance -- your grades are good and they are really focused on that. definitely get the hours together and you would be a good applicant.

 

good luck everyone!

From reading MUSC's website they do seem to favor applicants that have lived and worked in SC, however, I don't know if that is how it works in real life. Also, they only look at the prerequisite GPA, which is not simply "cumulative" and "science". The prereqs are here Prerequisites

 

I believe my prereq GPA is around 3.25.

I take the GRE next month and I am shooting for around a 1200, which I think I can get based off of the practice tests I have done.

I have been working for 6 months as an EMT-b, although I do medical transport, not 911.

 

I am planning on doing a medical missions/relief work trip in a Spanish speaking country, and possibly taking a "Spanish for medical students" course offered at USC. I am trying to make myself into a good candidate, I know my GPA is not exceptional, but how good of a chance do you think I have?
