FIRSTABLE: I would like to say THANKS to everybody who makes possible this way of communication-website, I feel so lucky and pleased that I found it just when I was about to GIVE UP.
I have a very difficult case here, I am hoping that someone may be able to help me or point me to the right direction.
Here I go,
Just like many cases here I always wanted to be a DOCTOR. There were so many things that changed direction of my life.
I lost my parents when I was a kid so I did not have any orientation or support. I tried so hard on my own in order to survive, I have been involved in many health related activities, like Paramedic at the Mexican Red Cross and member in the disaster team at my company (First-Aid/CPR/Health related) also my family is very involved in the medical field as well.
After all, I got graduated from a recognized Mexican University and I am currently holding the equivalent of US Bachelorâ€™s of Science on Computer Systems, This is according to a evaluation and transcription of a US Agency.
I have been working on the IT field for about TEN years but how ever the thoughts of being a DOCTOR comes back to me almost every day. I have been living in USA for about 11 years already and I am the best professional in my company in regarding knowledge and performance.
I have been wondering about the chances for me to get into a Medical School.
I am 35 years old. I would like to save as much time possible but I am willing to do whatever it takes to get into the field.
My Mexican Bachelorâ€™s GPA is 2.9â€¦Is it to low?
I want to get into premed program and get the best GPA (I think I can do it).
MY QUESTION IS:
CAN I GET INTO MEDICAL SCHOOL WITH THIS BACKGROUNG?
HOW BIG IS THE CHANCE WITH THE MEXICAN DEGREE (2.9GPA) + GOOD US PREMED GPA + VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES?
PLEASE LET ME KNOW THE DIRECTION I CAN TAKE !!!
There is no favorable wind for a mariner who does not know where to go !!!!!!!!!
