  • Home state: Virginia
  • Last Active: 07/20/2013
  • Brief Profile: I'm a non-traditional 27 y/o applicant having recently completed my bachelors degree following an associates of science. My extracurriculars are not spectacular compared to other applicants--10+ years of work experience in the healthcare field. I will, however, be completing a research-oriented Masters degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Georgetown and a Masters degree in Science and Medical Writing at Johns Hopkins. My BCPM GPA is pretty awful, but I'm hoping my high MCAT score will ameliorate how I look on paper.

    Follow me along as I tread the deep waters of medical school admissions :)

    Summary of Application Experience

    06/20/13 - Presently in the filling out application phase. Waiting on 1 more LoR, need to enter courses taken during associates, and write my personal statement.

Finished personal statement, waiting on the feedback from readers at SDN. Entered all my courses. Prospectively submitting application in 2 weeks. Late I know and it's a total gamble but I have no choice but to wait...
