Instructions for Thread Starters
Welcome to the "What are my chances" subforum of SDN! Please read the following rules and guidelines before posting.
-Please do not call out specific members in the title of your thread
-Please include the word "Texas" in your thread title if you are only applying in Texas. Similarly, include "International" or "Canadian" as applicable if you are not a US citizen. This will help users with the appropriate expertise find your thread.
-If you feel that your thread needs an extra level of anonymity, you may send me (sector9) a PM with the post contents and thread title and I will post it for you. This option should only be used if you feel it is absolutely necessary. Patience may be needed before the post appears.
Here is some suggested information to include in your thread. This is not an exhaustive list but should be considered the minimum to accurately help you:
-Your cumulative and science GPA (following AMCAS or AACOMAS calculation standards, as applicable)
-Clinical volunteer activities
-Physician shadowing (include specialties and total hours)
