  • Application cycles: 06/04/2012
  • Demographics: Male, 34, Caucasian
  • Home state: Virginia
  • Last Active: 12/16/2013
  • Brief Profile: -Re-applicant, applying to 28 MD and 5 DO schools.
    -My LORs were sent at the beginning of August, so my applications weren't complete until then or after.

    -I have written about my interview experiences at each school I visited, which can be found if you click on the individual school name below. I hope they can be helpful to any current or future applicants reading this, but know that some things are purely my opinion based on my experiences, and other things I say may not be true about a school because I have misinterpreted something (I'm human) or they have changed since I interviewed.

    -Last cycle I applied to 20 MD programs, interviewed at 2, waitlisted at 1, and was eventually rejected everywhere. So far this cycle, I have gotten a lot more love from schools with interview invites. I think this is due to having full-time employment experience, completely changing my personal statement and description of activities, and school selection. I'm incredible grateful for the interview opportunities and acceptances I've gotten this cycle.

    Extracurricular activities:

    4+ yrs paid research, multiple presentations, multiple publications
    2+ yrs EMS volunteering
    1 yr ER Scribe work
    Lots of shadowing - multiple specialists, 1 surgeon, and 1 PCP
    Not a lot of leadership
    Other random hobbies and extracurriculars
