    MS3 who just decided

    Medical School: Top 25
    Step 1: 260
    Step 2: will take after applications are in
    Clinical: All HP so far (Surgery, Neuro, Psych, IM, FM). Most likely will HP Peds and Ob-Gyn
    Pre-Clinical: P/F unranked
    Research: 2 middle author papers. 1 from undergrad(medical device), 1 from med school(cancer/path).
    Extracurriculars: Leadership in 2 school clubs, music
    LOR: 1 from research mentor, will try to pick up 1-2 letters from my medicine Sub-I in in the summer.

    My question is mainly about the amount and type of radiology experience that I should have on my application, and where to focus my efforts since I don't have a lot of time. Should I try to get on a radiology research project now? Do an early elective in 4th and try to get a letter? Just a little lost on how to proceed.

    I would also appreciate advice on type and location of programs to target. I have ties to the west coast and go to school in the mid-west.
