    Somewhat non-trad applicant - applied early and broadly to try to compensate for my lackluster stats.

    Self-assessment of strengths of my application - above average leadership and ECs, well-crafted essays, grad school performance, LORs, interview skills, life experiences, maturity.

    Self-assessment of weaknesses - Low undergrad GPA (but showed upward trend at a difficult private school and major), multiple MCAT retakes (thanks to verbal), somewhat low amount of shadowing hours.

    Summary of Application Experience

    The application process was very unpredictable for me with almost no rhyme or reason. I went into it with low expectations but as the months passed I was very pleased and surprised with my successes. I will be matriculating at my dream school in the coming fall! Extremely thankful and blessed! :D

    Contact me if you have any questions (esp non-trads or those who are trying to overcome lackluster stats).

    Bottom line: Be persistent, always keep fighting, and never give up.
