  • Yoo!

  • Application cycles: 06/01/2011
  • Demographics: Male, 36, Caucasian
  • Home state: California
  • Last Active: 04/29/2015
  • Brief Profile: It is clear from my stats that I am as average of an applicant as they come. I am not URM, rather I am part of the over represented majority.

    My interests and hobbies that I have done leading up to applying to medical school may also be observed to be quite average as well, but to me these activities have contributed to shaping who I am today. Many of my ECs were not done to appease adcom members, I genuinely was interested in many of the flippen moonshine kayaking chickenshin rooster egg planting things that I have done. I am proud of being able to say that I am living my life, and not one that I thought would enable me to get into medical school.

    This profile will hopefully give you an idea of the trials and tribulations of a non-super star applicant and the luck that may come my (and your) way!

    I am reppin' for da average homies yo! For dem homies who don’t have experience in a bird world country or supa-star pubs in dem high end journals like scionze, natural or sell.

    Summary of Application Experience


    I want to be honest.

    I did not make this profile with the intent to track my progress. Rather, I hoped that maybe I could instill positivity/hope to individuals who may not have the greatest of stats and are led to believe that there is no way that they could get into medical school. I choose not to provide specifics on the extracurriculars that I have done as a way to encourage future applicants to use their creativity and curiosity to explore activities that they are interested in. As we all have heard, time is valuable, and I believe we should not do things because we think it may enhance our application but because we are generally interested in it.

    With this said, I want to leave the reader with a quote that sparked this MDapps idea from the very beginning:

    "I shall pass this way but once; any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again"
    -Stephen Grellet

    You have it in you to achieve your dreams. Truly.
