    Summary of Application Experience

    Lots of clinical experience. No research. Finished a post-bac as a "career changer." This application cycle really takes a toll on your psyche.

    My advice - Don't apply late. MCAT scores don't seem to matter too much. GPA's below 3.35 are a dealbreaker.

    AACOMAS sGPA 3.60 cGPA 3.27

    Update 2/3 Team just lost the Super Bowl. That was my sacrifice so now I hope to be accepted to med school this month. Looks pretty grim. Heading to South Florida in a few hours though hoping for success at Nova!
