    I recently took the MCATs and I m a rising senior
    MCATs (40; BS 14, PS 14, VR 12, Q)
    I had a pretty bad first half of undergrad but I really kicked ass last year and hopefully I will graduate with both my cGPA and sGPA around 3.5. Realistically with these stats and these ECs what should I work on? aside from working hard, continue to kick ass getting my GPA as high as possible.
    Thanks for any advice!

    I m entering my senior year and plan to apply after graduating undergrad and so far I have
    150 hours of volunteering at a hospital (will continue do volunteer until application time so hopefully ~300 when I apply)
    40 Hours At Goodwill Freshmen year

    40 Hours of Shadowing at Freshmen Summer
    100 Hours of Shadowing this summer

    Research Assistant Summer of Freshmen Year
    Research Junior Year (Whole Year) under biology professor (no pubs)
    Research Senior Year with different professor, looking at more autonomy and hopefully getting something recognized (pub or poster) by the time of application

    Fraternity Member
    Philanthropy Chair Sophomore Year

    Vice President of Fraternity (Junior Year) Leadership role
