  • Application cycles: 07/27/2010
  • Demographics: Male, 34, Caucasian
  • Home state: California
  • Brief Profile: Here is a little bit about me:
    - couple hospital volunteer positions (100+ hours each) and research for over a year
    - GPA close to a 4.0, MCAT of 37 (transferred from a community college though)

    I think I have a couple things working against me even though I have decent stats, which is my EC activities are kind of meager and I spent a long time at my JC where I took my prereqs at too). Was hoping life experience (dealt with serious illness) would help and is the reason I was at my JC so long, but I dunno. I should have probably used the disadvantaged section to mention that more clearly, but at the time felt like it would be making excuses and also thought I touched on it a little in my PS, so decided not to. Will probably update this with more detailed info after cycle over. Good luck to everyone else!
