I am a double major at my university in both biology and philosophy, the philosophy being an honors program. My cum GPA is a 3.48 and my MCAT score is a 36. However, I feel extremely nervous regarding my chances at MD schools, such as Jefferson, as I feel these statistics are not up to par. In addition to these grades, I have over 300 hours of volunteer work in my local community, am a TA for microbiology, coach the crew team for the university's club team (rowed for a nationally ranked crew in high school), tutor local high school kids and volunteer at the local health clinic. I have shadowed both MD's and DO's. I feel that my biggest strength though is my clinical experience, which is approaching the 3 year mark. I started as an orderly and eventually became the ER tech and medic (doing grunt work like EKGs, phlebotomy, assisting with sutures and the like). I am also responsible for responding to codes and starting compressions during the codes. Additionaly, I worked for the medical examiners office one summer as an autopsy tech and have seen pretty much everything possible and held every organ in the body. In no means am I trying to toot my own horn, I am just trying to give an honest run-down at what I will be presenting to med schools in addition to what I feel to be mediocre grades. Thanks for the responses.
