    Hey everyone I was wondering about what you thought my chances at a US MD school are. Here is a brief profile at this point after my Junior year.

    32 MCAT 10-12-10
    3.54 overall GPA with a 3.3 science GPA but an upward trend and As in harder science classes
    NC resident
    Primaries are ready to be sent out mid June
    Solid LORs

    -1 summer chemistry research with no pubs
    -1 summer epidemiological statistics research no pubs
    -500 hours at a local free clinic
    -250 hours at an ENT clinic at my local hospital with extensive ENT shadowing
    -100 Peds ED volunteer hours
    -100 Adult ED volunteer hours at two different hospitals
    -50 hours of Neuro ICU volunteer hours
    -Shadowed several orthopedic surgeons, a pediatric radiologist and invasive cardiologist
    -recieved the hospital voluteer award this year

    I figured I would apply broadly and early this cycle and see what happens. Anybody have any ideas or pointers. I think GPA will be my weakest point.

    Everything looks good. Be sure to apply broadly so that those schools that screen by GPA alone don't get you. Good luck!
