what's your MCAT break down? with your gpa, I'd take it again, bring it up to at least a 27 and apply to US med schools as well as DO and the caribbean.

Caribbean with those stats!?

Are you out of your mind?

Apply DO! You WILL get interviews! FMG should only be last resort (no offense to anyone here). FMGs have far more limitations than DOs in the US.

And besides, this one is on the DO forum...not the Caribbean forum.

i echo wagdog. carrib should be a last resort. if u try both Md and DO and u not successful, then carib will be good too.

good luck
