Hi there! Long time lurker. Open to MD and DO schools. Here goes nothin:
  1. cGPA 3.78, sGPA 3.50

  3. NY resident (Long Island specifically if that's important?)
  4. Caucasian, F
  5. UG private research university, also a co-op school - Health Science Major
  6. Clinical experience: (2000+ hrs)
    1. hospital volunteer in vascular surgery - helped to spend time with patients, upkeep the floor, make sure charts were appropriately kept
    2. children's hospital volunteer - my second job is a children's entertainment as a clown. A few times a month I donate my time to local children's hospitals and cancer centers
    3. medical scribe - over 1500 hrs across Orthopedics, Pulmonology, Plastic Surgery, OB/GYN, Pediatrics
  7. Research experience and productivity (10 hrs)
    1. Studied access to healthcare in an urban area. I know this is a super low number, but I support myself between 2 jobs and could not handle a 3rd. C'est la vie.
  8. Shadowing experience and specialties represented
    1. Shadowed in all specialties mentioned above before scribing (~200 hrs)
  9. Non-clinical volunteering (~300 hrs)
    1. various community service events through sorority across 3 years
    2. local special olympics volunteer

    5. worked freelance graphic design throughout UG
  11. Anything else not listed you think might be important
    1. I finished my UG coursework in 2.5 years and graduated early. Not sure if this is good or bad?
Really hoping to stay in the Northeast. Been using the MSAR but feeling totally lost. I was told by my advisor that retaking the mcat would not be in my favor, especially because I literally do not think I could afford to 1) register for it 2) take off work to study for it. Pleeeeeease help!!

thank you so much for your input @Faha. Do you foresee the low MCAT being a big issue?

@Goro do you agree with this list? Looking for all the help I can get :nailbiting:
