Hi all! I'm a first-time poster applying this cycle, would love to know whether there are any more schools I should add and anyone's general thoughts.
  • 4.0 cGPA, 3.99sGPA, as verified by AMCAS.
  • MCAT: 515 (129/128/129/129)
  • White, taking a gap year now.
  • Clinical: all volunteer hours, 640 at one place and 200 at another.
  • Research: 3000 hrs basic science. No pubs but working on manuscript (first author, not on app but will be on secondaries). 3 national conference poster presentations, some presentations on campus. 81 hrs elsewhere.
  • Volunteering (non-clinical): 727 hrs
  • Teaching/tutoring experience: 226 hrs
  • Shadowing: ~60 hrs, multiple specialties (some only 4 hrs, some 30)
  • Lots of leadership and artistic EC important in my PS.

I'm hoping to apply to ~30 schools and this is what I have so far:
  • In-state school(s) (OOS for all others)
  • Albert Einstein College of Medicine
  • Boston University School of Medicine
  • Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
