I am a resident of Nebraska.
I am a little confused about everything right now. I am a reapplicant (I applied to UNMC and got waitlisted and did not get in).
So now I am trying to cast a wider net for schools to make sure I get in next year. Most of the schools I will be applying to will be first time I am applying but I am still having a hard time deciding where to apply to give myself the best shot/not reach too high or too low. Here is my current list:
University of Wisconsin School of Medicine
Missouri School of Medicine
Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine
University of Minnesota Medical School Twin Cities
Vermont College of Medicine
Univeristy of Nebraska Medical Center
Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University
University of Washington School of Medicine
Tufts University School of Medicine
William Beaumont School of Medicine
Viginia Commonwealth School of Medicine
Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
Rush Medical College
West Virginia School of Medicine
My other areas are:
Biological Systems Engineering Major
80 hours of volunteering in Hospitals
160 hours of Shadowing Physicians
2 years of work in a research lab
Numerous leadership roles in college
Two trips to Madagascar for Engineers Without Borders to install community service projects
Numerous awards and recommendations in college
I have been working at Bosch for the last year with engineering
I feel like I have strong ECs and a strong application but I am still afraid of applying anywhere with a higher than 33 average MCAT because I took it a second time. Granted I did way better but I am just a little confused still. My number one would still be UNMC but I want to make sure I get in.
Can anyone give me a little advice on my schools and if I am missing any obvious ones? Looking at the thousands of applicants is making me question my application since I got denied this last year.
