SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey guys. I would appreciate any advice any one here could give me on how I could bolster my application until I apply next cycle, or if I should apply at all. I know I have plenty of room for improvement. Here's my background and ECs: cGPA: 3.5, sGPA: 3.4 in Engineering -upward trend with about 20 semester hours of upper level science classes at 3.9. MCAT: 30(11ps/7v/12bs) -Will be re-taking in January. Didn't study nearly as much as I should have, especially in verbal. ECs -Worked for 8 years at a golf course; Supervised 10-12 employees for 2 years. -200 hours clinical volunteering spanning 2 years. -50 hours shadowing in two specialties. -About 80 hours non-clinical volunteering. -Taught golf to kids for 8 years, a few hours a week. -Helped run junior golf program for 1 year. -Probably not worth mentioning but played competitive golf during summers. That's about it. I know I need to apply early and very broadly to have any chance, but any other advice would be most appreciated. Thanks.
