MD Applicants

  • Application cycles: 07/02/2013
  • Demographics: Male, 33, Hispanic
  • Home state: California
  • Last Active: 04/27/2019
  • Brief Profile: Do not listen to what others say, including counselors and SDN. Just do the best that you can, be passionate, be genuine, and dream big. Numbers are significant but without the experiences, essays, and LORs even with the highest numbers you will have difficulty getting in. Do not let a set of numbers define you. Everyone is unique and has something to offer, it is up to you to figure out what that is and to sell it to admissions committees.

    I have very significant clinical experience, leadership experience, work experience, and research experience (although no publications). I feel that I was lacking in community service and volunteer work. I am passionate about going into academic medicine.

    I am blessed beyond measure. I was ecstatic to receive every one of my interview invitations and acceptances. I saw myself being very happy at any school I was accepted at. My dream was to be accepted by a MD school and in the end I had a few incredible choices. It definitely was an incredible year and I encourage all of you to dream big, do not underestimate yourselves, and to shoot for the stars! Remember, you miss every shot that you do not take.

    If you have any specific questions please feel free to send me a message.

    Summary of Application Experience

    Incredibly expensive...this process selects against the underprivileged. Seems like an extremely unfair process.
