Nontraditional applicant, graduated with a biochem degree in May 2011. My first 2 years at UW were really rough, 2 semesters under a 3. I went through some hardships my first two years, decided not to give up and my last several years I was pretty much a 4.0 student and ended up with a 3.5. After graduating I did a yr of research at UPenn and then moved back to Wisco and became part of a team to open a new community hospital. I feel like a strong applicant once I get past the preliminary/number screens and onto the interview stage.
