I am a 30 y/o physical therapist with a bachelors from India and a Master’s from a US college. I wish to go to Medical School.
I would appreciate some advice regarding how to go about science credits… the pre-med advisor of IU looked at my Physical Therapy transcripts and said that I would be fine with taking two semester courses each of Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Organic with lab. She mentioned that since I have a Masters in Physical Therapy that the committee would be ok with these pre-reqs only.
- I want to make sure that my application will not be weak at other med schools and that they too will consider my academic performance in my Master’s program ( GPA 3.8)
- I was happy that these pre-requisites could be covered in a years time starting this upcoming semester. Am I crazy to apply for Fall 2010?
I know that is a lot and I will have to have my MCATS done in time to apply as well.
Any insights would be much appreciated!
