Hey guys just thought I would add a "what are my chances" thread for you guys to throw your collective knowledge at. I am a senior Biology major with a Chem. minor and a Psych minor. Overall GPA is a little above 3.5 and science closer to 3.6. My freshman year let me down there, since then been 3.7-3.9 every semester, hopefully the admissions guys will notice that. MCAT scores are not in yet as I took it in August, but I should score around a 28-30 based on all my practice tests (around 11-12V, 9-10B and 8-9P). The part I am anxious about is my clinical and professional experience. I never worked in a hospital, no clinics, and no research. My hospital at home would not let me work, the hospital here near my school is so packed they won't take any volunteers even. I had one lead with a Cardiologist, but I had to have my school sign a multi-million dollar policy on me, which they would not do. The only medical related experience I have is working in a pharmacy these past 3.5 months. While I know this is not a hospital, not clinical or anything like that, I did have a lot of patient contact. Granted I wasn't giving them a diagnosis, but I still had to talk with upwards of 200 sick people each day. I also feel I got to see a side of medicine that not many see. It is amazing how many people are not satisfied with what their doctors tell them and come into a pharmacy seeking the counseling a caring physician should have given them. Anyway...that's the extent of my experience? Do I have a shot? I am only applying to a few schools, one of which is ECU (other schools include UNC and Wake), which has average GPA of 3.5, MCAT's of a little above eight for each section. They say they place a high emphasis on recommendations as well and I have several so...(but then again doesn't everybody) Just a couple more things. While I don't have much experience, I haven't been idle these four years at college. I participated in intercollegiate athletics for two years at the varsity level, did some tutoring, lot of work around campus in the biology department (none of which was research, mainly caring for equipment, lab prep etc.) Well that is about it, not worried about my interviews, I do very well in those. Just worried about getting that far. Sorry to be so long winded. Any responses appreciated!!
