    Hey guys, I need some advice on how i'm doing and what else needs to be done to make my application more well rounded and strong to get into NECO. I really need to go to this school because I have to take care of my parents as well. I'm hoping someone will give me some advice to increase my chances of being accepted here.

    My stats:

    cGPA= 3.35 I'm pretty sure my cGPA will be closer to 3.5 after the spring 2012 semester
    sGPA= 3.22

    Extra curricular: 40 hours volunteering as a patient relations intern at hospital
    80 hours of research as an assistant at hospital
    40 hours shadowing an ophthalmologist/ optometrist
    40 hours of volunteering at soup kitchen
    40 hours of volunteering/ working with children with autism
    Member of pre-med and asian student association.

    i believe you have good stats, ace your OAT, and maybe try to shadow different modes of practice (maybe try commerical practice?)
