Hi all, I guess I'm curious to find out what people think are my chances, and thoughts on which schools to aim for. My stats are as follows: 522 MCAT : 132/130/132/128 (prev. MCAT 33 in 2011) My cGPA is 3.46, sGPA 3.41, gradGPA 4.0, with a PhD in Medical Genetics. I have been a postdoctoral fellow for 2 years, currently at a well-known non-profit institute. My clinical activities are weak. I'm currently shadowing a surgeon (~15 hrs so far). I have >1 US patent, I have >5 publications (2 first author). I have excellent reference letters (as far as I know). Various ECs, but mostly in the academic realm (teaching, committees, presentations), with a couple exclusively non-academic volunteer activities. Several awards/scholarships. Note that I am Canadian but work/reside in the US. Also, I am LGBT. I am not sure whether I should or shouldn't mention this in secondaries (aim to complete them all this weekend; I did not mention this in the AMCAS Personal Statement). Thoughts on the above greatly appreciated.
