    Hey guys not sure if this belongs here but this is my list of schools I am applying to. I have a 3.5 sci, 3.5 cum but with an upward trend, expect a high 30's mcat score, have an excellent personal statement and a very well rounded list of EC's with a lot of clinical work but a few hobbies as well. I feel that my gpa is a little low, hence the pretty long list of schools. I have most of the "easiest" schools as well as quite a few reaches. Thanks for the input mates.

    Albany
    BU
    Columbia
    Drexel
    Harvard
    Jefferson Creighton
    Hopkins
    Loyola
    Mayo
    NYMC
    NYU
    St Louis
    Sanford
    Stanford
    UofA (AZ resident)
    Tufts
    UVA
    Wake
    WU

    Assuming your MCAT is 34+ then your list of schools is quite viable. Except have you done any research work and/or get publications? That may be an important factor in most of the top-tier schools, since the MSAR usually states # of accepted applicants having research experience (>90%).

    Overall good luck in the application process and I hope you get in! :)

    Thanks for the support. It's real easy to get negative when filling out your amcas and thinking about everything you COULD have done differently.

    Later!
