  • Brief Profile: Majored in both a Social Science and Biology in college. I applied to 15 MSTP programs last year, waitlisted at two programs. I didn't have any clinical experience last year, and my major problem was applying too early.

    MCAT is between 36 and 40, GPA is between 3.5 and 3.69.

    I have 3 years research experience in small microbiology lab at good Midwestern state school. One 2nd author paper, one international conference. I will be continuing to work in a new microbio lab during this upcoming year.

    Non clinical extracurriculars:
    Forensics, 4 years in college
    Bio club, 1 year in college
    Political stuff, 3 years in first half of college
    Scattered odds and ends (acting, that sort of thing)

    Clinical experience:
    Hospital volunteer, 1 year
    Shadowing, 50 hours

    LORs: It's impossible to know for sure, but I think my letters are strong. I was told last year that two of my letters were very strong, and this year I'm adding in a letter from my volunteering experience.

    Summary of Application Experience

    I'm trying to get into a MD/PhD program in the same area as my SO (who's applying MD), so this could get tricky! I'm applying to as many schools as I can to increase the chances of this happening.

    About 1/3rd huge reach, 1/3rd reasonable, and 1/3rd where my numbers are higher than average. Last year I was waitlisted at a huge reach school, so who knows what can happen?
