  • Brief Profile: Will provide more details soon...

    I am particularly interested in global health and bioethics, so I'd like to pursue either an MPH or MA in Bioethics at some point -- I chose to apply to the schools listed below largely as a result of their strength in these areas and their commitment to the underserved (here or abroad)
  • // Applications //

    Application Cycle One: 2006

    • Undergraduate college: Penn State
    • Undergraduate Area of study: Engineering/Technology
    • Total MCAT SCORE: 519
    • MCAT Section Scores: B/B 130, C/P 132, CARS 126  
    • Overall GPA: 3.98
    • Science GPA: 4.00

    Summary of Application Experience

    April MCAT, submitted AMCAS in late June after MCAT scores were released (waiting for those scores might have been the longest 2 months of my life)

    Received/submitted all secondaries (except Michigan) by the end of July, decided in early October to add Michigan

    Late April: After receiving financial aid letters, I decided to Withdraw from the NYC schools. Really hard to do (I loved all of them), but I could not justify the cost. Decision is now between Pitt and Penn.

    Going on interviews was actually a fun experience -- great opportunity to see some new cities and meet some cool people! I highly recommend staying with a student host whenever possible; I stayed with a student host at OSU, Columbia, NYU, MSSM, and Harvard--the students were so friendly, and it gave me a chance to hear more about student life (plus save some cash after all those expensive apps!)

    I wish everyone the best of luck in this process!
