Summary of Application Experience

Had a multitude of family problems my first few years of college and I've had a respectable upward trend for the past two years. I'm applying to a lot of top-tier schools with blind hope, haha. I just need one to let me in! Would honestly be happy to go anywhere, as long as it's in a big city.

ECs include 4 years of research (1 yr in a cancer research lab and 3 years in a behavioral intervention lab - highest honors on thesis, oral presentation at professional conference, multiple posters, preparing for publishing).

Clinical experience: healthcare clinic in Uganda (600 hrs), free clinic (50 hrs)

Other: HIV counselor (300 hrs), Nutrition counselor (50 hrs)

Leadership: President of two social justice-type organizations

5 LORs - gen chem professor, research adviser, nutrition professor, biochem professor, philosophy professor. Most likely all very strong!

We'll see how this application cycle pans out!
