    Hey just wanted to know my chances for this upcoming cycle

    Undergraduate cgpa is 3.44 and sgpa is 3.4
    SMP at Georgetown cgpa 3.5
    MCAT #1 19N (P:6 V:6 B:8)
    MCAT #2 32N (P:11 V:10 B:11)

    ECs
    Free clinic volunteer for a summer
    Research in undergrad for 2 years w/ 2 publications and senior thesis.
    Research in grad at MGH for 1 year and wrote a grad thesis.
    Volunteered in Hospice for 1 year
    Volunteered in a local hospital for 1 year
    Shadowed a Oncologist for 2 months
    Worked as a research intern at an Aquarium for a summer.

    Any thoughts on my chances. I am a NY resident. I am guessing the SUNYs are my only shot. Thanks for any advice!

    Nice job getting the MCAT score higher.

    Stats-wise, completing an SMP with a 3.5 will increase your ~51% chance of an MD acceptance (per AAMC AllApplicants stats grids), but I think you'll need to apply more broadly than in-state schools. Consider adding other schools that offer an SMP and Wayne, besides others that your program advisor indicates were successful targets by past alums of your SMP.

    EC-wise, your clinical experience and research look very good. Your shadowing could be broadened with the inclusion of one day with an office-based primary care doc.

    Any leadership, teaching, or nonmedical community service? Any hobbies, artistic endeavor, or sport involvement?
