  • Application cycles: 08/01/2010
  • Demographics: Female, 34
  • Home state: California
  • Last Active: 06/13/2011
  • Brief Profile: First time applicant! The basics:
    - BA/MPH from top tier, decent GPA, good MCAT, URM
    - ECs: teaching assistant, bench research, volunteer work, shadowing, leadership in club sports

    I\'d say my GPA is my biggest weakness, but I think my MCAT makes up for it (I actually took it twice - first time was 29S). Then again, who knows, eh?

    I applied to all the CA schools and a few others - I tried to apply broadly/reasonably.

    Summary of Application Experience

    Exhausting but worth it!

    The knowledge that I\'m going to be a doctor is just so...overwhelming. =)

    Summer 2011 update:
    So after I was pulled off Stanford\'s waitlist, I took a few days to think about it and decided that I could succeed and be happy there. I have withdrawn my other waitlists/acceptances and will be matriculating there in the fall.

    Good luck to everyone!
