    accidently posted without the list. Edited

    I followed the doctor around like a shadow, but he had me go in to the rooms before he saw patients and get their histories and report them back to him. This one-on-one patient experience was incredible. I took blood pressures, heart rates, listened to lungs, looked in ears and throats etc. He went over the basics diagnostics with me and we discussed every patient he saw briefly when he was done.

    I posted a bit more about it here when i first started and most people agreed that it was well above and beyond shadowing

    That's 8 schools where you have a fair to good chance of an interview. That's usually enough for AZ.

    Thank you for the response. If you don't mind me asking, what are the 8 that you consider to be in my range?
