I'm sure these things get posted a lot. But I just want to know what range of schools I should be looking at, and if schools like Stanford or Ivy leagues would be out of the question. My sGPA is like 3.92 cGPA is about the same maybe a little definitely around the 3.9 range MCAT still waiting on results I took my test July 18th and I'll be getting scores soon here, but based on scores of other people in the same percentile ranges for the AAMC practice test my score should be anywhere from 506-514. (I only had about 1 month of studying but most of that was spent in a summer physics class so I will retake it again next year if it is not good). I have probably around 5,000 hours of clinical experience working in urgent care/surgery center/pain management clinics I don't have much volunteer experience but I did do a medical mission in Ukraine which added up to be around 72 hours. I currently work in a research lab but my first semester was this last spring so I don't have a lot of research exp. I am from low SES, I am hispanic and white mixed male. I am still working on submitting my application so I know that can be a huge disadvantage for me so I will try again next cycle earlier if things don't work out this time around. Any thoughts? I don't really have much money to be wasting on applications so I was thinking about applying to 5 or so this cycle maybe one reach school and then if I don't get in the first time trying again next cycle and focusing on fixing the MCAT, getting more volunteer experience, and saving more money to apply to more schools (had no idea how much applying itself would cost).
