Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a Ca. resident to get into any public or private school in ca. My stats are ok, but nothing fantastic! I had a really bad first year. I am determined to do well on the MCAT, have had lots of volunteer work, as well as paid work as an EMT. Can anyone tell me any stories of people who have gained acceptance to Ca. schools, who thought they would never make it in? Also if you could tell me what you think got you in with less than perfect numbers. I know the whole process is screwy, just looking for some hope here!
