Chances - in general

Post by Adminnaoum »

Because of growing demand, we're going to build a tool similar to our medical school finder specific to DO schools.

To build this tool, we need to track down statistics for each DO school, including,

For matriculated students:
Average MCAT score broken down by section
Average GPA
Ratio of in-state vs. out-of-state applicants and matriculants
State where school is located

Because there is no "MSAR" for DO schools, we'll need to collect this info from individual schools.

If you come across this type of information in your research, please post it to this thread!

Thanks drn
