  • Application cycles: 06/12/2009
  • Demographics: Female, 35, Caucasian
  • Home state: Georgia
  • Last Active: 03/25/2010
  • Brief Profile: Even though my scores are floating around SDN already, I will post them here when the cycle is done.

    I am a very global brain type person-besides an obvious passion for medicine and hard science, I also paint and write. I don\'t know how unique that makes me but my minor (Comparative Literature) has been an area of intense interest for every interviewer so far and my poor major (Chemistry) has garnered little attention besides inquiries about how I manage my PChem work load during interview season-the answer is: in style!
    So if nothing else, I will say that my brain\'s well articulated right side has been of great advantage in getting the interviewers interested in who I am.

    Some of my ECs:
    4 years working for Cardiology Division\'s EP Research Department
    3.5 years tutoring/supplemental instruction in Biology, Chemistry and Physics at a local High School
    2 years Tutor students at my university in Calculus, Physics and Biology
    1 year TA in Biology Lab
    1 year Research in Biochemistry
    Two summers in an Trauma Research Internship. ~450 hours in ICU with close involvement in patient care
    100 hours and counting shadowing physicians (outside of the internship, which had shadowing component)
    ~50 community service hours each semester
    Exec member in several of my clubs and very active in all the rest.

    Summary of Application Experience

    Not quite sure what goes here but I thought I\\\'d relate my LOR experience for anyone who has similar issues in the future:
    I had great trouble with submitting one of my letters of recommendation due to the writer\\\\\\\'s lack of awareness of real world. Brilliant people are not typically made to deal with real world problems. We figured it out eventually. That\\\\\\\'s the reason my application wasn\\\\\\\'t actually in on 6/02/2009, trying to figure this letter issue out was maddening! lol

    Moral of the story-an very well and thoughtfully written letter from someone who has completely changed my way of seeing the world is worth 11 days. :)
