I'm looking at applying in May and I'm just looking for some advice about what I can do to strengthen my application further and what my chances are and where I should apply? Here's what I'm looking at doing: -take a couple more courses (Microbiology, Biochemistry), hopefully doing well with A's in these. Any recommendation on other courses I should look at? -look into gaining more clinical hours through volunteering at Children's Hospital 4 hrs/wk (approx 80-100hrs) -Studying like crazy for the MCAT to knock it out of the park! Any advice on anything else I should do to strengthen my application?
