  • Brief Profile: Non-traditional applicant. I graduated with a BA in History originally intending to go to law school. Graduated with honors, decided not to apply to law schools, and investigated medicine. Returned to school to take the pre-reqs with a do-it-yourself post bac, got a job, got engaged, bought a house, got married, started taking classes toward a BS as a requirement of my employer. Finally decided to actually apply after moving away from medicine for a few years.

    Summary of Application Experience

    I had few EC\'s that are considered necessary for admission to medical school: no research, no shadowing, a little tutoring during undergrad, no leadership and I started hospital volunteering after submitting my application. I applied EDP for this reason, expecting to have to apply next cycle anyway. It worked out for me, as I was accepted by my first choice school through their Early Decision Program. I believe my non-traditional status helped my application, including my job as an armed security guard in post-Katrina New Orleans.
