While I think your chances are high, you need to list your completed hours. Projected hours wont help if you submitted your application... It may look like you are embellishing your activities. If you aren't submitting for another cycle (when you finish your Masters degree), then we are conjecturing.The hours and length listed include the activities includes my senior year as well.
Yes, I will not be applying this cycle but the cycle after next. I just listed my projected hours by time I apply. My organization focuses on restoring the community by offering underserved areas free service. There is also a fundraising project at the end of each semester that focuses on collecting clothes and toys for the less fortunate. This organization however has no ties to MAPS or SNMA as of now. I’m hoping to fulfill my plan in every category. Any recommendations on the best way to network with top medical schools? I’ve sent emails to there admissions committee but due to a high volume of emails they sent me an automated email. Thank you very much for the feedback though!While I think your chances are high, you need to list your completed hours. Projected hours wont help if you submitted your application...

When did you take your MCAT? Breakdown?
What does your organization do with underserved communities? Any cooperation or networking with MAPS, SNMA, etc.? Have you presented at SFN? Given your internships at other medical schools, I would expect you to have maintained your relationships with them. What recommendations did they give you on a list that was favorable to your neuroscience interests?
Clearly you have potential, but you also said you aren't applying this cycle (right?). Take this time to do some homework and network with the schools high on your list. Make them know you will be on the market and connect with mentors now.
I appreciate it! I’m an upcoming sophomore that’s a year younger than everyone so I’m hoping to matriculate right after I graduate. I understand planning is important so I set realistic, high achieving goals for myself! I will send updates regularly.Setting your sights high and I applaud you for it. However, we can give you a better idea in a few years when your ECs, GPA, and MCAT are solidified. Having a plan and projecting stuff is great but return when everything is set in stone. Keep up the good work!
