Summary of Application Experience

Posting this to encourage other Princeton kids with bad grades.

I decided to seriously pursue medicine senior year, took an extra year of postbac bio/science classes at my home state school, and got 7 interviews at MD schools as an ORM male [granted, absolutely working my ass off for the last three years]. You can do it too.

The grades above were mine after graduating Princeton; I received a 3.94 in my postbac year over 32 credits, which boosted cGPA to 3.25 and sGPA to 3.5 (these were the scores on AMCAS).

Two pieces of advice: (1) submit early (2) write personalized follow-up letters around Thanksgiving if you haven't heard back from schools (connoting your specific interest in that school). 5 of my 7 IIs came in Dec/Jan.

Feel free to PM if interested.
