I\'ve done a very random assortment of things. A significant amount of volunteer work in clinical settings. A lot of health-related work internationally. Extensive research in undergrad; biochemistry major. Irritated by my GPA (~3.5), yet hoping excellent LORs, unique ECs, and a decent MCAT score will get me in somewhere.
I\'m currently acquiring my MPH at an Ivy.

Summary of Application Experience
Submitted AMCAS 6/9/11, verified 6/24/11. - Applying VERY broadly. I decided to designate several \"reach\" schools. But, hoping admissions committees see me as an unique applicant, I\'m crossing my fingers that one of my \"reach\" schools finds me fascinating enough to at least invite me for an interview.
Summary of Experience:
Surprised. I had heard that essentially any OOSer without Indiana connections is typically rejected outright. I\'m curious to know what they saw. After the interview, i was disappointed. We didn\'t get to actually talk to many current students. It just seemed sloppy.
