    Hey guys! I just want to know what you all think of my chances to get in to the schools that I have selected thus far to apply to. Also, if you have any other schools that you think I should be applying to, please let me know! I'd preferably like to stay in the mid-west, but we'll see what happens.

    My info is on my MDapplicants profile, but real quick:
    MCAT= 31T (10 Verb, 10 Physical, 11 Bio)
    GPA= 3.95 Cumulative, 3.987 BCPM

    I have lots of clinical volunteer work (200+ hours at Rush university med center), I'm an active member of AMSA, etc. I also have 40 hours of physician shadowing and am very involved with the ministry department at my school (I sing for masses and stuff). I'm also going on a Volunteer trip in August to Honduras for a week with the Global Medical Brigade.

    Schools list:
    University of Wisconsin-Madison
    UIC (University of Illinois in Chicago)
    Medical College of Wisconsin
    Loyola University Stricht School of Medicine
    Rush University
    Rosalind Franklin School of Medicine
    Mayo Clinic (this is my "reach" school)
    University of Chicago (this is my "let's see what happens" school)
    Northwestern University (just for the hell of it)
    University of Southern Illinois
    St. Louis University
    University of Iowa??? (maybe)

    So yea, let me know what you think, and suggestions of other schools that may accept me (I'm an Illinois Resident) are always helpful!! Thanks a lot

    You have a strong GPA and a good MCAT (awesome job on that T!) and your ECs look good as well. I think you should get into one of those schools. Are you applying to all of the schools in IL? If you've got the money that might be a good idea if you're not... your list looks just a little short.

    Yea, I'm applying to every school in IL actually (all seven of them!). Then the 2 in wisconsin, 1 in Iowa, 1 in Minnesota, and 1 in Missouri...like I said, I think I wanna stay in the midwest (preferably Chicago!)...also, I don't know if I can fly out for interviews if I apply to any schools on the coast. I'm still not sure though. I'm planning on turning everything in this week if I can iron out the last few kinks on my Personal Statement!! Thanks for your compliments, tho!

    ~I checked ur profile and ur activies look pretty similar to mine...what instruments do you play and what do you like to sing? Just curious!~
