Oh, hey, were you looking for the preview of the OUWB Fall 2011 Schedule? [either click the lazy person link to go straight to the entry, or just scroll down]
Since I’m sure that a number of people are curious about the “numbers” for OUWB’s inaugural class, I thought I’d start by giving you a sample size of n=1 [and if you think about it, with a class of 50 people my numbers account for 2% — how many people can say that about their medical school?!]. You could have already been really SDN savvy and found that one post that I listed them, but not everyone is a forum expert [trust me, you’ll catch up real fast on that front]. Anyway, this post is going to be slightly more detailed.
Are you ready?
AMCAS overall GPA: 3.76; AMCAS science GPA: 3.75; MCAT: 31Q. But keep in mind that numbers really only get you so far.
How about another piece of information?
AMCAS verified: early September
How about one more?
The majority of schools that I received interviews from were the ones that I was complete the latest [in fact, I submitted OUWB’s secondary a couple of days before the deadline].
A couple of things I’m trying to get at here:
- A late application is not the end of the world [but more on that later]
- Numbers are not the only factor that schools consider [however, I did not say they were unimportant]
- Life experience matters.
As promised on SDN, when we have the final class numbers I’ll be sure to disseminate the information [but don’t hold your breath since like most medical schools, our class has not yet been finalized, and probably won’t be until we start classes].
In other news… I’m going to be road-tripping to California! They say that the summer before you matriculate is your last chance to be free from the grips of medicine [okay, I don’t really see medicine that negatively, but I’m a realist], so I’ve been yearning for an opportunity to do something fun and finally found it! More on that later.
Comments are much appreciated. Even anonymous ones. Help me, help you! [wow, that was cheesy… I apologize.]
