  • User #17157

  • Application cycles: 2009
  • Demographics: Female, Caucasian
  • Home state: Oklahoma
  • Brief Profile: Scholarships/Honors/Awards (kind of general for now):
    -National Merit Scholar
    -Recipient of competitive travel fellowship for summer study/travels
    -Undergraduate research grant recipient/presentation award
    -Honors college
    -Awards for juried music performance, winning concerto competition, and leadership in ensembles
    -Various other scholarships for music, leadership, academics
    -Deans list all semesters

    -ongoing-will be 2 years volunteering at a free clinic
    - hospice volunteering (visiting patients and playing piano, organizing fellow musicians to perform at local facilities...not sure if this is clinical, the patient visiting part anyway, or just regular volunteering) (2 years)
    - public health/intensive Spanish/clinical program in Mexico (for which I received the aforementioned travel scholarship). I am really interested in public health and do not purport to be saving the world by going abroad, but I am interested in working with this organization further once I get to medical school, and I am pursuing courses outside of science during undergrad that intertwine well with these career goals. (this summer-9 weeks)

    -Summer lab tech job in molecular biology (1 summer)
    -Honors research/thesis in neuroscience lab, w/ poster, presentation, abstract and 3rd author publication in respectable journal (1.5 years)
    -Development economics research starting early next fall

    -Worked for my PI helping edit grants,etc. (1 year)
    -ACT, SAT, PSAT, GRE, soon to be MCAT Teacher/tutor for major test prep. company (2 years)
    -Aforementioned summer lab tech job (1 summer)

    -Campus global health organization (2 years)
    -Neuroscience club vp (3 years)
    -ONE organization (worked on fair trade, sustainable development, poverty issues etc....I might leave this out as it could seem political, I was involved with a lot of fair trade stuff with them) (2 years)
    -Latin American Studies double major and Spanish minor, former music performance/bio double major for 2 years
    -Piano and french horn lessons, recitals, ensembles, juried performances (all 4 years plus many years prior to college)
    -Several campus and community-wide music ensembles, have been section leader/principal and soloist in many of them (4 years)
    -Volunteer jazz pianist and brass/audition prep. teacher at local summer music program (2 summers)
    -Math tutor for local middle schoolers (1 year)

    I am taking the MCAT in May. Practice scores have been between 38 and 41 but I don't want to assume prematurely that the real thing will turn out that well. I am still oscillating a little bit regarding whether or not I want to apply this summer or next. I really want to take a year and do some international work/study (pipe dreams for a fulbright fellowship in Latin America, but I have other ideas as well), as I hope to pursue an MPH or DrPH along with the MD and I know it is frowned upon to ask for a deferral.
