MD Applicants

  • Humbug

  • Application cycles: 06/09/2013
  • Demographics: Male, 34, Caucasian
  • Home state: Michigan
  • Last Active: 12/21/2017
  • Brief Profile: 36Q MCAT, AMCAS and AACOMAS GPAs < 3.2.

    I didn't do so well in undergrad, so I went to work for a few years to better myself as an applicant. I worked hard for a good MCAT score, and did everything I could to make myself more competitive.

    3 years of experience managing a neuroscience lab after graduating. One first-author publication, two second-author publications, and a fourth manuscript in prep.

    A couple of grad/post-undergrad classes at top-ranked New England schools with a post-grad GPA of > 3.8.

    Hundreds of hours volunteering in a top-ranked hospital ED.

    10/9/13: More hopeful for an acceptance somewhere since I now have two interview invites! Also hoping for some love from the two DO schools I applied to rather late. :)

    11/1/13: Absolutely zero communication between October and November. The silence is terrible while watching interview spots fill up through January! I wish I had a job where I wasn't sitting at a computer all day... constantly refreshing my e-mail...

    3/27/2014: Committed to MSU-COM. Accepted there in November, and I think it's my best choice for a great medical education. I'm sick of waiting for CMU and Albany, and think MSU would be the best fit regardless.

    Summary of Application Experience

    I've realized there's nothing quite like waiting through 9+ months of silence for disappointment. What a stressful process.
