Hi all, I'm new to this forum so I apologize in advance if I break any informal rules I just recently (2002) graduated from college; I will be taking MCATS in april 2003 and then apply to medical school for 2003-2004 cycle. My grades are average at best (3.5cum, 3.45sci) and I have NO (i mean NO) clinical experience. I plan to volunteer at a hospital, volunteer at planned parenthood and tutor inner city kids. An acquaintance of mine at Hopkins (he's a student who conducts interviews) told me I shouldn't even apply until I have a significant amount of clinical experience under my belt. I would appreciate any feedback?? Thanks, Lubdubb P.S. The extent of my EC's : research with a bio professor for a summer, and I was an undergrad laboratory TA for a bio class.
