  • Application cycles: 06/01/2017
  • Demographics: Male, 25, African
  • Home state: Florida
  • Last Active: 12/16/2017
  • Brief Profile: Actual MCAT in 2017: 509 (127/126/128/128). Don't have time to retake so it'll have to do.

    I'm aiming for the stars so if I fall, I'll fall on clouds! My MCAT and my minimal research are my biggest weaknesses, so I realize my top choices are a long shot (I have God on my side though). I've been an LPN for 4 years so I'm really trying to emphasize my clinical experience on my application. Here's a little about my stats/involvement:

    • Clinical Experience : over 7000 hours over 4 years
    - Substance Abuse Nursing
    - Geriatric Nursing

    • Volunteering (Non-medical): over 300 hours

    • Sociology Research (community oriented): 40 hours

    • Physician Shadowing
    - Addictionologist: 50 hours
    - Urologist: 40 hours
    - Cardiologist: 45 hours

    • Leadership/Teaching
    - Director of Clinical Skills for on campus club that does mission trips abroad
    - Nursing Preceptor for new nurses
    - Leading multiple seizure responses and other emergencies in the clinical setting

    • Awards/Recognitions
    - Dean’s and President’s list multiple times
    - Scholars award from my university
    - Valedictorian of graduating nursing class

    Note: I'm a FAP recipient so I'm only applying to 16 schools.
