:w:

I was in Physiological Psychology. I was more interested in neuro-anatomy. Much of my work was in research. However, on the few times I actually worked for money, I worked for the State as a Social Worker. Seems that if you get State employment and they see the label psychologist they assume Clinical psych and put you to work social work. I also did a little teaching at a university.

Hi, how is medical school overall? How is the workload? Also, I'm currently going to a community college at the moment, my GPA right now is a 3.7 and I know I can raise it up to about a 3.9 or so if I get a 4.0 for this semester and summer courses. I'm planning on applying to a few 'public ivy league' Universities for the Fall semester. If I maintain a 3.5 or higher at one of those Universities, how are my chances of getting into Medical school (i.e., John Hopkins, Cornell), in your opinion?--anyone can answer actually. I know that being at a community college has definitely lowered my chances of getting accepted into a prestigious Medical school. (I imagine it might be better to talk this over with a counselor but I thought I'd asked anyways) Thank you.

Have you considered Centenary College in Louisiana for pre-med? Centenary has about the highest acceptance rate for the major med schools. When I did my undergrad work at least 85% of the pre-med students were accepted by the med school of their choice. It is an expensive school, but substantial financial aid is available to academically gifted students.

Don't be put off by it's affiliation with the Methodist Church, they do not shove their religious beliefs down your throat. When I was a student we had many non-Christian students.

Thank you, no--I haven't heard of this school. I will definitely check it out. Not so sure my parents would want me so far from home, but I might think about applying there anyways lol. I was initially looking for instate Universities in Virginia (William and Mary/UVa/James Madison) and possibly University of Maryland. I don't mind at all if a University is affiliated with a particular religion..as long as it isn't as conservative as Liberty University for instance.

:sl: Not really sis, you don't even have to necessarily go to those big shot Ivy League unis, trying going to the Caribbean, Europe, or even Pakistan. I was watching a program on TV a couple of weeks ago where Dan Rather was talking about Universities and the fact that they make a lot of money by turning students down, trying to make themselves look ''prestiguous''.

No University really cares about whether you went straight from high school or a CC lol, at the end of the day they're getting more money in their pockets. Plus, you are a transfer student, technically by that time you wouldn't be in a CC student anymore right. Good luck though sis. :)

I work part-time as a sales associate, I hate seeing customers so I work in the back, and I'm studying part-time (*ECE aka Early Childhood Education). I'm hoping to become a kindergarten teacher inshaa'Allaah.

My med school is french so it's different. I can tell you that there is a lot of studying involved but it's not that difficult.
As for you not being able to get into a prestigious medical school, I don't think it's impossible. I have friends who passed the MCAT and got into medical school ( in Lebanon) and they had averages like yours and a lot of people I know got admitted into medical schools in Canada, France and the US. They got admitted even though they're from a foreign country, so I am sure your chances of getting into a good medical school are good. So what if you came from a community college? It's not a problem, you should just study as much as you can...

yeah being a student its hard... when it comes to understanding the work and passing exams... but the teacher has to prepare and be patient (i say the patience as some students really drive you mad) and teaching one lesson can suck out a lot of energy! Sometimes you want to sleep while standing...
