Summary of Application Experience

Applied late due to crazy life events.

ECs
100 hours of shadowing
Helped start bass fishing club + competed nationally in college bass fishing
150 hours volunteer tutoring
TA'd two courses
500 Hours tutoring student athletes
Few other minor things i'm forgetting

Gap year activities
hospice care volunteer
tutoring for employment (middle school kids + high school kids, at a company)

was told my personal statements was excellent by multiple interviewers. i'm a philosophy minor and explained how that influenced my motivation to pursue medicine, among other things mentioned.

Alot of my dates are approximate, other than complete date. But theyre very close.


I did this whole thing incorrectly. I applied very late, to not that many schools (7), to only one of my three in state schools, without a committee letter(due to late app), without all that much clinical experience(no clinical volunteering on my primary, but I did a fair amount throughout my gap year and with my late interviews I was able to talk about it quite a bit), and with no research. I'm under no illusion that without a 39 on my MCAT / 3.95 gpa I wouldn't have had this success with such an atypical cycle. The other key is I have a very strong motivation towards medicine from my philosophy background and my goal in being a physician mentor(as evidenced by my ~1500-2000 hours of tutoring). So with my grades and motivations I think I was able to quell and reservations the adcoms had about me.
