  • Application cycles: 06/06/2009
  • Demographics: Male, 36, Caucasian
  • Home state: California
  • Last Active: 07/25/2010
  • Brief Profile: MCAT: Acceptable but not too respectable.
    sGPA: Sub par overall, but: 2.83-->3.39-->3.77-->3.80
    cGPA: Mediocre overall, but: 3.38-->3.57-->3.75-->3.84
    ECs: A ton with a lot of variety and leadership.

    So I\'m obviously playing the improvement/well rounded card. For those of you with stats like mine, we may not have the 42S nor the 3.95, but that just might be OK. Hopefully something will workout after all of this application madness! Good luck to everyone enduring this process!
