  • Brief Profile: Keeping it relatively anonymous for now. I graduated in the spring of 2009 with a double major (Biology & Chemistry) and I took a year off to do research and explore more interests. I participated in a huge variety of different volunteer and clinical activities along with a pretty big focus on music, dance and sports in college. I also did about 4 years of research and completed an honors thesis.

    Summary of Application Experience

    I applied late to many of my schools and I mean really late (not SDN late) as in at the deadlines for many schools. However, I\'m trying to make up for lost time. We\'ll see how it goes.

    I have learned one lesson though this entire process: definitely apply early although I have gotten a bit lucky with getting some interviews and an acceptance to the school that I ultimately wanted to go to in the beginning. The variety and commitment within my ECs, my research, my interviewing, and my MCAT definitely carried me through this process to counteract how late that I applied and my GPA. If you need any advice on applying late or applying with a lower GPA/high MCAT, just send me a message.
