I recently took the mcat exam for a second time. I scored 509 and have a 3.97 gpa. My gap year is a year of research in a biological developmental lab and I am writing my first manuscript. I graduated college with honors in 3 years and was awarded the American Heart Association Fellowship Grant for 2016, where did a 10 week fellowship research project. What are my chances of being accepted to med school. Last year I was not accepted but my mcat was lower and I di not have the year of research.

U Washington accepts less than 1% of applicants who are not from states in the Northwest. UNC accepts few non residents. I suggest adding more schools this week to increase your chances for more interviews such as:
Vermont
New York Medical College
Albany
Drexel
Temple
Jefferson
Oakland Beaumont
Medical College Wisconsin
St. Louis
Creighton
