Summary of Application Experience

Graduated in 2010 with a bs. in chemical and biomolecular engineering
worked for 2 years doing biochem bench research at harvard med

did some volunteer and service work abroad both during and after college, which tied in with my interest in global health
also have quite a bit of research experience and 4 publications (though none are first author) this may or may not have helped not sure

some clinical exposure but limited since I wasn't premed in college...this possibly hurt my application

overall the mcat was the biggest weakness i think and made the year very stressful... buuut very thankful that it worked out and that i won't have to reapply

biggest advice: tailor your application and make sure the primary and secondaries are polished and written well... generic responses are not good... also don't be like me... study for the mcat and don't take it unless you are beyond ready!!

good luck everyone!
