Figured I'd make a profile after looking over the whole site for people with similar stats. As you can see I'm aiming a little high for my MCAT score, but I figure I'm better off trying than pre-rejecting myself! Starting off this application cycle I'm hopeful, but I can already tell this is going to be an emotional roller coaster of a year. I've applied as early as possible to give myself the best possible chance, though having to wait until 7/22 for my committee letter (much longer than anticipated) might have ruined that a little.
-I have a lot of research experience throughout all 4 years of my undergraduate career and all 3 summers. I've done work at Ivy League institutions and even abroad, educating rural populations about the importance of cancer tests.
-Presented at 3 national research conferences
-300+ hours of volunteering/shadowing
-Worked 20 hours a week the entire time I was a full time student
-Disadvantaged and overcame a lot of socioeconomic obstacles and family issues to even get a chance at an undergraduate education

SO EXCITED about this II. After working here for a summer I'm thrilled to come back. Waitlisted. Kinda a bummer since I don't expect there to be much movement, but we'll see in April I guess!
