    If you're adding Drexel and Penn you might as well add Jefferson.

    Hey,

    I have similar stats to you(lower gpa though/check my mdapps if interested but wont be applying until next year)....

    I might recommend applying to a few more middle tier schools...you have a lot of great schools where you'l be a good candidate but you never really know as the process is so competitive.

    Maybe consider
    Tufts
    Wake Forest
    Boston

    I think scholarship money is usually specific to the applicant, so I wouldn't tailor your list that way. Your best bet for a scholarship is definitely your state school if you have very good stats and/or a very unusual/diverse application.

    However, if you get into Mayo (which I see is already on your list), you are guaranteed a great scholarship. Tuition is relatively cheap at $29,000, and on top of that, everyone gets a $15,000 scholarship (while about 40% of the class will get a $25,000 scholarship instead).
