Gap year between ug and med school to do an americorps teaching fellowship. Good non-medical ECs (I think a relative lack of clinical experience sunk me at the top 10 schools, but no biggie!). Strong research and LOR. LGBT. My ultimate goal was to stay in Boston, and Boston University is offering me a merit scholarship. When taking into account that BU is a highly regarded medical school and has a fantastic match list, the merit scholarship seals the deal.
