  • Application cycles: 2009
  • Demographics: Male, South Asian
  • Home state: Florida
  • Brief Profile: Retook MCAT June 18...No idea how I did, did not feel great but neither did most people so I'm praying for good curve...(First MCAT 28R)

    AMCAS is not actually verified, submitting July 10 or so, realize it's late but MCAT kept me from finishing...just said verified so schools will show up...

    1)Volunteer hometown hospital escort summers(2005-2008)- 200 hrs total
    2)Volunteer VA hospital escort(April 2009-Present)- 4 hrs/week
    3)Volunteer United Way (March 2009-Present)- 2 hrs/week
    Have already done plenty of different projects, so much more fun
    than all other volunteer experiences, wish I'd tried this earlier
    4)Volunteer religious events (Summer 2006, 2007) - 40 hrs total
    5)Research Nanoscale mechanics physics lab - 1 poster credit, 1
    paper(2nd author)- 4-8 hrs/week Sept. 2008-Present
    6)Honors Thesis (Top 15 in large public university 2009)
    -IM tennis 2005-2007
    -IM cricket 2008-2009
    -Hockey 2006, 2009
    -Gastroenterologist - 20 hrs
    -Cardiologist - 80 hrs (LOR)
    -Oncologist - 20 hrs
    -Internist - 20 hrs
    9)All the normal awards (Dean's List 3 semester, Phi Kappa Phi, etc.)

    I think my ECs are all average, but I'm hoping they are enough to get my foot in the door at some schools. Hoping for a 30+ on my MCAT, but it's out of my hands now and still have 3 weeks to wait for the new score. My LORs should all be fairly strong, and one should be glowing (I get to write that one, gotta love lazy teachers). My application is mediocre at best, I realize, so I am hoping that at least 1 MD/DO school pulls through, otherwise it's off to sunny Grenada (SGU). I know there's a lot of debate between DO and SGU, but I think I'd rather stay in the US and practically be guaranteed a residency spot somewhere. Good luck to all 2010 applicants!
