  • Application cycles: 06/26/2013
  • Demographics: Male, 28, South Asian
  • Home state: New Jersey
  • Last Active: 08/27/2013
  • Brief Profile: I took the July 2nd MCAT and unfortunately did not perform as well as I would have liked. Of course, there is no MCAT writing score, I just put K in randomly. MCAT score is 32, which I suppose is okay, but it is still nothing fantastic. I'm hoping my grades will pull me through. I was verified on August 7th of 2013. Little more about me:

    EMT - 3 years with local first aid and rescue squad

    Physician Shadow - 100 Hours

    University Genetics Study Group Leader - 1 year

    University Supplemental Instructor for Organic Chemistry for Underrepresented Students - 1 semester

    Research Experience - 3 years with award winning senior thesis, small undergraduate grant, presentation at national conference, abstract publication, multiple poster presentations, summer research fellowship

    Bristol Myers Squibb Summer Internship - Summer-long basic science research investigation in toxicology

    Honors Awards - few awards when I graduated, summa cum laude, highest departmental honors, several departmental awards, academic excellence award, honor society induction and leadership

    Pre-Health Honor Society - spent two years serving in a leadership position here

    Religious Discussion Group - discuss Hindu philosophy on a weekly basis

    Student Ambassador - 2 years

    Regarding Letters of Rec: I got like 12 letters of recommendation from various people throughout the years, and I am positive that the letters that my Prehealth Committee put together will be very strong.

    In my time off, I am continuing my work in my undergraduate laboratory, tutoring, and volunteering...pretty much the usual premed kinda deal. I'm going to be going abroad at the end of the year. If I'm to say anything about this process, its just that its really annoying and I swear to god if I can get into my state schools nice and early, I might just pull out of the application process right then and there.

    Summary of Application Experience

    8/19/13 - I guess that I am right on time for everything. My secondaries are, for the most part, sent out already so I'm just waiting to get screened and get an interview. I wish I took my MCAT earlier, but I kept chickening out each time I had to take it , so I took it a little late and performed pretty average on it.
