So it's December and I'm thinking that I'll have to reapply this coming June. I have only rejections and pre-interview holds to show for my application this cycle. Does anyone have any recommendations of things to do during the next six months to strengthen my application? It seems like the time frame is too small for serious research work or other traditional resume-padding activities. My GPA and MCAT are okay: 3.8 and 34, My ECs are mediocre: 1 year work at a lab (no publication), and 200+ hours volunteering / shadowing. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
