  • Application cycles: 06/06/2015
  • Demographics: Male, 30, East Asian
  • Home state: New York
  • Last Active: 04/06/2016
  • Brief Profile: I'm not terribly anonymous on here, which is a bit concerning, but I figured I'd try to help others as much as I can by maintaining a detailed MDApps. There are some profiles on here that are the same, and those were extremely helpful for me and continue to be - thought I'd pay it forward and help anyone with similar stats/interviewing at the same places as I did/will be.

    Disregard the writing score; I took the MCAT in 2014. Score is between 30-34, and both cumulative and science GPAs are >3.6.

    Taking a gap year working as a research fellow. Career changer, though younger than most in my situation. I've been told that my school list is a bit too top-heavy for my stats, but I'm taking a risk with the good stories I'm telling in my application.

    Research: Second-author publication, animal behavior research, medical humanities research, and two summers at a research internship working with the same PI*
    Awards: a mix of awards from school and an abstract award for a major conference presentation
    Clinical Experience: volunteering (~300 hours), shadowing (~40 hours, various specialties), project leader for public health initiatives*
    Employment: student assistant for organic chemistry teaching labs, retail employment
    Other: college quidditch, resident advisor*, TA for a laboratory class, pep band

    *Most meaningful experiences.
