    I went to Gonzaga U and majored in Electrical Engineering w/ pre-med concentration and Jazz minor (graduated in May 2010)

    3.77 GPA

    MCAT is a little dicey - 32R

    14 PS
    11 B
    7 V

    I taught AP computer science and math last year at a private HS and am signed up for next year to teach part-time and be a part-time medical scribe.

    I have (high school) behavioral neuroscience reserach experience, around 100 hours of emergency room volunteering experience, was a OChem TA for 4 semesters in college. Was VP of college's health sciences club. Have good recs and wanna know what my chances are! I know my verbal score is my weak spot - any ideas?

    Here's my school list:

    Baylor College of Medicine
    Creighton University School of Medicine
    Georgetown University School of Medicine
    Keck Sch. of Med.University of Southern California
    Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medici
    Mount Sinai School of Medicine
    Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicin
    Oregon Health and Science University
    Saint Louis University School of Medicine
    Stanford University School of Medicine
    Tulane University School of Medicine
    Wake Forest University School of Medicine
    Weill Medical College of Cornell University

    Other schools I should add to up my chances? I am an Oregon resident.

    I suggest you use the MSAR to seek out schools with a bottom tenth percentile for VS of 7 or 8 and lower, like UIllinois and Rosalind Franklin.

    Where is the best place to look up MSAR to find schools that I should apply to?

    One more question - I took the GRE because I am thinking of bioengineering schools as my backup plan; would listing my GRE verbal score (500, which is approximately 60%) on the AMCAS help my case at all?

    Thanks so much for your help!

    Go to your prehealth advising office or the reference library on campus, or the med school library (if there is one), as they should have one you can take a look at. Or you can buy your own on-line version for $15 at https://www.aamc.org/students/applying/requirements/msar/

    I don't know that a GRE score in the 60th %tile will help your case.
