  • Brief Profile: I'm just putting up my information now because a lot of people and even schools discouraged me from applying to some higher-ranked places. And I did anyway. I've gone on some amazing interviews, and I want to let you know that there is hope for you even if you don't have a 42 MCAT, a 3.98 GPA, or an insanely amazing life story. Sometimes SDN makes you think you don't have a chance if your stats don't hit a certain LizzyM mark or median score. Don't let this process get you down!!!

    Here's what I thought about my chances before setting out: 1) Thought: "I've got a shot at UC-Davis, Cincinnati, and USC." 2) Hoped: "Maybe I can get an interview invite for Case Western, UCLA, or Cornell and wow their pants off if I keep my wits together on the interview day." 3) Dreamed: "Please please please, gods of all religions everywhere, please give me a chance at either Stanford or UCSF, please!" 4) Didn't even think about interviewing at Penn, Hopkins, or Harvard... See below for current results... Strange and beautiful how life works out.
