Hey guys I know this is my first post I just now discovered SDN!!! I hope to be a long time lurker especially if I do not get in this cycle. Anyways I am really curious about my school choices any help would be appreciated because I think my school list sucks after reading a lot on here!!

-3.6 GPA with a similar sGPA
-509 MCAT
-SC resident
-URM(Hispanic)

Extracurriculars:
1) 1,300 hours of volunteering as a Bonner Scholar for the following:
-240 in a free clinic in Mexico
-400 at a economically deprived community school
-240 as a camp counselor for a YMCA camp
-390 translating at a non profit focusing on those who can't attain healthcare
-Then a few smaller ones

2) Two summers at a SURP program hopefully coming out as a co-author in a bit for one of my projects.

3) VP of a fraternity coordinating two fundraisers raising over $10,000

4) 300 hours of clinical shadowing

School List:
-All 3 SC schools
-Emory
-Wake Forest
-U of Alabama

You are a good candidate for your SC schools. Alabama, UNC and U IL accept few non residents with your stats. You could add a few more schools such as Eastern Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth, GW, Georgetown, St. Louis, Creighton, Loyola, Miami.

Thank you so much Faha. I will definitely be editing the list and sending in the primary today. I almost thought about adding Tufts. What are your thoughts on that?

Tufts would be fine to apply to. Mexican Americans are URM so that will help you.

I assume SC is your state of residence? If so there is no reason to have UNC, you dont have the stats as an OOS applicant
