Graduated in 2012 and have had a mini-career in enology, which included living 6 months in central Chile. I shot myself in the foot and decided to work one last harvest in California, which is why I'm submitting so late...

Any thoughts on my chances for being accepted to an MD school THIS cycle? I am confident I could be accepted to a DO school, but would be upset at myself if the only reason I didn't make MD was because I applied late.

Thanks in advance
