Same stats as before, but add the medical scribe work and more tutoring. This time I applied to more schools, but did not end up completing the secondary to UCSD, Northwestern, Columbia, Emory, or Pitt (and so these schools do not show up on the list below, even though I did apply to them and therefore help their admission stat %).
