    Ya,ya - I know its a little too soon to be deciding which schools to apply to in light of the fact we've yet to receive our test score, but where does everyone think they'd like to end up?

    I want to go to either Hopkins, UPenn, or Cornell. I will probably also apply to a combination of either GWU, Pitt, Howard, or Mt. Sinai to round out my applications.

    Thanks to SDN's most addicted poster, DRA Foxy, and the advice she gave on applying to a range of schools I'm ending up with a tab of around,600 smackers, YUK. There's variety in your eye. Any how some of the schools I think I'm gonna apply to are similar to you above posters: Penn,Yale,Columbia,UMich - Arizona,Tulane,GW,Prtizker,Finch,AE,NYMC,SLU,PSU, OHSU,DMS and I think that I'll stop there...
    Can I tell you how tempted I am just to go with the first acceptance [hopefully] and call it good. This process is friggin' nuts!!!!!

    I'm going to apply to these schools for sure, and some others that I haven't decided on yet:

    UCLA - top choice, UCSF, UCSD, UCI, UCD, Stanfurd (hehe), USC

    the others ones will depend on my MCAT score...

    I'm applying to all eight of the Texas Schools: Southwestern, Baylor, UT Houston, UT San Antonio, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, TCOM, and UTMB. Since all of them are on the separate Texas App with only Baylor on AMCAS, I think I might apply to a few other national schools as well to see where I stand, but most likely I'll stay in Texas.

    I would absolutely love to be able to go to hopkins. but for now i must wait for that darn little mcat score to inform me if i have any hopes of being competitive. As for the others, I havent completely decided, but probably emory, vanderbuilt, baylor, harvard. The number of top schools will probably be editted once I get my scores back, but right now I will hope for the best! I havent really made the list of backup schools yet. Obviously, I will be applying to my instate (Louisiana) schools, but other than that I don't know. Where are some good places for someone who is interested in research, but doesn't want to do MSTP?

    my schools are pretty much everywhere. Schools I'm super comptetive at, I'm going with UIC, RUSH, UW-madison (my alma matter). But then instead of applying to schools that I woulnd't like, I just chose 20 other really "good" schools that I'd love to go to. I figure, the extra number should compensate for me not having many "reserve" schools.
