    Hey Guys here are my stats

    School - Cornell University

    Overall GPA 3.52

    Science GPA 3.4

    MCAT - Taking in August - assume 30

    I have 200+hrs volunteering in a hospital at school and a children's hospital at home.

    I have numerous leadership positions within my fraternity, including vice president

    I am the president of a organization on campus called Students for Organ Donation

    I have shadowing experience in most fields of medicine

    I am the captain of my intramural basketball and softball teams.

    I have worked at a daycamp for the past 5 years. Working with five year old boys.


    Here are the schools I'm applying to (i am a NY State Resident)

    Can you please help me narrow down my list or suggest any schools. I am pretty much aiming for a mid tier school.

    Also how much does it help if my grandfather donates to a medical school and has a scholarship in his name? It is a mid-tier school.

    Hey - everything looks good! We have similar stats (3.6 overall/3.4 sci/31Q MCAT). Why not Dartmouth? I see you have Vermont on there, so it must not be because of the cold weather! Might as well apply and see how it goes!

    Also, I would skip out on Maryland and New Jersey - too few spots for OOSers.

    If you want to cut out more, I would do so in this order: 1. GWU 2. Albany 3. Tulane

    thanks for your advice. I can't cut out GWU though. My grandfather graduated from GWU and he donates there!

    also Dartmouth is not on my list because that would probably be a reach.

    Any chance you'll do better than 30 on the MCAT? Like say a mid 30? If you do, I'd say you have a shot. I know a non-URM from my school (also an Ivy) who had a 3.5 but ended up at Harvard.
