    Hey there! Alright, so I applied in the 2011 cycle and did not get in. Did get waitlisted at Jefferson, but unfortunately not pulled up.

    I graduated in the spring of 2011 and since then have been working as the office manager for a large family practice.

    The office management job has given me some major shadowing opportunities/a lot of patient contact. I also now have a way, way better idea of what it takes to be in primary care.

    I have also been volunteering for three hours a week at the local children's hospital since summer 2011.

    My biggest weakness from the first go-round was probably the low MCAT plus little clinical experience.

    I'm going for mostly low-tier MD schools and top-tier DO schools.

    Last but not least, the numbers.

    I am retaking the MCAT at the end of the month to try and get my score up.

    GPA: 3.6
    SGPA: 3.4
    MCAT: 29
    V: 11
    PS: 9
    BS:9
