Hi, I am wondering if I could get some advice on my list of schools to apply to. I am a CO resident and have a 3.8+ cGPA and sGPA with a 32Q MCAT. I am somewhat nontraditional in that I took some of my prereqs right after graduating and, while I could claim URM status, I am not doing so because I do not feel I have had sufficient interaction with that part of my heritage (i.e., I marked myself as "Caucasian"). I am also fluent in Spanish at an advanced (but not native) level. I did not list it as a language I speak on AMCAS; however, it was mentioned throughout my ECs (e.g., that I interpret for Spanish-speaking pts). Here is roughly what I have: 1.5 years of part-time hospital experience in both in-patient and ED areas (tech and clerical, including scribing) including some training experience 1.5 years of clinical volunteering including some supervising/training 1 yr training in a martial art (hobby) 3 yrs teaching & tutoring 2.5 yrs non-clinical community service 1.5 yrs in leadership of pre-health professions/pre-med program (led successful initiative to gain funding for new program and new advisor and subsequent multidisciplinary approach to pre-med/pre-health program) 48 hrs shadowing + many hrs of scribing 0.75 yrs in a non-hospital clinical position (included administering meds, supervising, training, etc.) Research: First author/project lead on 1 national presentation and 1 institutional/regional presentation Research: 3 projects over 4 yrs International Service: 4 trips (2-12 weeks in length) and 1 planned for next year (a major interest of mine is international health) 3 yrs of peer mentoring (including leadership and training of mentors) 4 yrs of music-related jobs and activities 13 yrs as a freelance musician/EC musical activities LORs: Biochem Prof -- A in class (top score in class), had as a supervisor (tutoring), worked on Pre-Health initiative with him Human Physiology Prof -- A in class & worked with on Pre-Health/Pre-Med things Lab Instructor Training Prof -- A in course & was closely involved with Pre-Health/Pre-Med initiative Psych Prof -- A in 2 classes; research advisor; supervisor as a TA; known ~4 yrs ED Physician -- scribe trainer; work with him in ED regularly Free Clinic Medical Director -- medical director at the free clinic where I work Here is my list: REACH NYU Tufts Emory Wake Forest OHSU Penn State Georgetown MATCH U of Colorado St. Louis U Medical College of Wisconsin Loyola Virginia Commonwealth Drexel SAFETY GWU NYMC Loma Linda Tulane Creighton Jefferson I would appreciate any advice you may have on my choice of schools.
