    Majored in the social sciences in undergrad, decided during my senior year that I wanted to pursue medicine. Did a formal structured postbacc 2012-2013, and am taking a gap year to apply, work in a hospital, and in general live life as a real person for a year before med school starts.

    Work/Activites:
    Lots of lab experience
    Gap year job in clinical research
    Very involved in undergrad, lots of entertaining extracurriculars

    Clinical experience:
    -Community mental health program
    -Suburban hospital (patient visiting)
    -Free clinic volunteer (which I absolutely love)

    What I'm doing if this doesn't work out: Brewing beer out of my basement and starting the next Dogfish Head (obviously)

    Summary of Application Experience

    Timeline:

    AMCAS verified 7/15.
    MCAT scores released 8/13. Holy crap! Over the moon right now. A few points above my AAMC average (~36), and much better than I figured after the test (left feeling it hadn't gone all that well). Figures.

    10/31: Accepted at Sinai! First acceptance!

    I'll update with more exact dates as the cycle goes on, and will post school impressions soon.
