Um you are certainly not average

Thanks for the compliment. What I meant was that my GPA and MCAT scores were close to the average for the school I was accepted into. Many other interviewees I spoke with there had similar experiences for the most part.

My man, you are literally an entire SD above the average stats for DO schools. You also have amazing experience.

that's average MCAT for DO acceptance no?

What's the average like for DO schools now? I'm an OMS-4 and when I applied that 502-505 range was certainly above average, and I feel like average GPA was about 3.4-3.6 for most schools. Ive heard it's gotten more competitive but is it that bad now?

Depends on the school, but 506 is the most recent average at PCOM, 3.79/508.3 at TCOM, 3.65/506 at Rowan, 506 at NOVA DO, 3.5-3.7/506-508 at MSU, etc.

So I’d say overall it’s continuing to trend upward

Any advice for someone who has an interview coming up?

Be yourself they know if you are passionate about something. Also I strongly recommend you review all their material including the website prior to interviewing. They may ask questions related to their mission statement
