Don\'t want to reveal state but I\'m on US east coast.
LOR\'s are really good as I have one from lab PI (5/5 best), major advisor (4/5), physician (4/5), non-science faculty member (hopefully 5/5) and volunteer supervisor (5/5). Year and a half of research experience during the school year 10-20 hour a week commitment as I run the experiment and report directly to my PI. I have won two undergraduate grants to fund my research and presented a poster at a multi-school conference and will be working on a senior thesis this upcoming year. Volunteered for over 300 hours (half clinical and half non-clinical), shadowed 5 specialties for total of 80 hours, and have leadership in organizations as well as sit on school administration boards and committee\\\'s. I would rate the PS at 7/10.
