    Thanks Utenation! A secondary question for all- are there any specific schools that are more “practice-focused” and that tend to look more at the applicant as a whole (as opposed to focusing on numbers alone)? I just want to keep my options open yet narrow it down to more realistic schools.

    You mention being a NE resident. Both Louisiana state medical schools do not accept ANY out of state residents unless you have previous family who attended their medical school.
