Summary of Application Experience
Made this profile to help med school applicants. I got in to 3 schools with a sub-30 MCAT score and a pretty average application (I didn\'t have any publications, I didn\'t cure cancer and I didn\'t do a medical mission anywhere).. and I am also an international student (I had no state school benefits.. no state residence, no green card). At the beginning of this process, I never thought I would be turning down interviews and withdrawing post-interview pre-decision but I was very meticulous with my applications and I submitted early. That allowed me to get interviews and ultimately, get accepted. I am so thankful. Hopefully my profile helps someone else. Good luck.
