    Loma Linda - make sure you agree with their lifestyle guidelines
    UMDNJ's - from what I understand, these are not friendly to OOS at all
    U Missouri KC - I believe they matriculate in January, so make sure you're okay with that

    I thought I might include the UMDNJ's because I'm from the tri-state area, but I agree - OOS acceptance rates are slim.

    Any input on MD chances?

    See comments above which may help you cut down your school list.

    P.S. I know you probably just meant that your research thesis was great, but if your work actually was on creating super flies, that would be incredibly awesome.

    Unfortunately just super-worms, no super-flies. They glowed. It was pretty awesome.

    Thanks for the help! :)

    Ah...I did Drosophila work myself so I get kind of excited whenever I hear about cool fly research.

    You seem to be coming at this the right way: You have a good upward trend, helped to redeem your GPA with a great MCAT, have solid ECs, and plan to apply broadly. I would be really surprised if you didn't get at least one acceptance. Good luck.
