  • Brief Profile: Have read these profiles so many times that I decided to make one (and keep it as anonymous as possible!)!
    Post-Bacc GPA: 3.98
    Clinical research, several different volunteer activities, a lot of community service with underserved communities, and a few significant leadership roles held when I was in undergrad (at a top 10 school). I was out of school for several years before I started a post-bacc, and all in all I'm a pretty nontraditional candidate.

    Summary of Application Experience

    I submitted AMCAS in late June, was verified in mid-July, and was complete pretty much everywhere in August (there were a few stragglers where I was complete in September). I am ecstatic about the interviews (and acceptances) I've had, although, yes, the process seems absolutely as random as everyone says it is. I am a very non-traditional candidate with a very non-sciencey background, and my personal statement was mostly focused on my commitment to social justice.
