I applied to med school this year as an undergrad senior, so I have no post-undergrad experiences yet. Numbers were pretty good MCAT: 33Q GPA: 3.45 Lots of extracurriculars including student government and leadership positions in the schools health sciences club but no medical/clinical/research experience outside of ER shadows and 18 months of volunteering in a children's hospital (I want to go into pediatrics). I'm blind to my letter of recommendation (university committee style) but I feel that is definitely beneficial. I have great relationships with all the professors involved in writing it. Anyways, I got 3 interviews (Georgetown, OHSU, and WVU) and am currently wait listed at all 3. None of the schools rank their list so I have no idea where I stand with any of them. I feel like my interviews went fairly well, confident enough that I don't feel like I adversely affected my application. Now, if I dont get in this year, I do want to reapply next year (aka this year). However, its kinda a rock and hard place issue as far as looking into things I can do next year if I dont get in, because I dont want to contractually commit to something then have to break it if I do get off one of the wait lists. So, just some experiencial questions... when should I seriously tank the hopes of getting off one of the wait list and really buckle down on looking into plans for next year? Should I hop on the reapplication AMCAS train right in the beginning of May? What sort of programs could I look into? I'm guessing I've probably missed the boat for post-graduate programs. I wouldn't mind doing research but would really love to find something that adds to my clinical experiences. Any other tidbits really would be appreciated as well! Thanks in advance!
