  • Home state: New Jersey
  • Last Active: 11/14/2013
  • Brief Profile: Currently applying. Semi-nontrad. I already have a document on my computer with all of this information, but I thought I'd share my stats on here since MDApps has been an invaluable resource for me. I hope that my profile will be helpful to future applicants.

    I have a very low uGPA, with my undergrad sGPA below 3.0. I have no excuses; I was immature and did not value my academics in the way I should have. Finally got my act together, entered an SMP and received a 3.85 gGPA while taking medical and graduate school classes.

    *~300 hours clinical volunteering
    *~300 hours shadowing
    * Years of research with a publication and multiple conference presentations (admittedly two were at my schools 'Student Achievement Day' haha)
    * Tons of ECs, founded my own public health organization, president of the largest minority association on campus, health care analyst in renowned minority political non-profit
    * 7 years of experience as a pharmacy technician (then pharmacy manager) in underserved areas

    Summary of Application Experience

    This is such a grueling process and the uncertainty is killing me. I'm especially nervous since I wasn't able to submit most applications until September because I had to wait for my newest MCAT score (previous was a 30N).

    10/18/2013: 3 IIs and 1 rejection so far, so I'm happy :)
    -- Later on today: strike that, 4 IIs!
