I would love to get any feedback from you all on my personal scenario -- (good stuff first) I graduated from Stanford last June, am working at UCSF doing clinical research, have research background in a lab (contributed to an abstract), some motivating personal experiences for becoming a physician, double majored in Biology and English, extensive background in music. Sadly, thats where the good stuff ends - my GPA is 3.5, Science GPA 3.2 (had a really bad sophomore year in science with 3 Cs, but everything generally improves afterwards, with As in my science classes senior year), MCAT 31R. Unfortunately, I am not going to have time to take more science classes or retake the MCAT. I am applying for fall '05 and am thinking of applying to about 30 schools, am a California resident, so I'll definitely be applying to the California schools, but I am trying to come up with a list. What do you guys think are my chances of getting into mid-tier med schools, like GW, BU, Georgetown, Tufts? Any suggestions for lower tier schools that like Cali residents and are preferably in a good location? Any other feedback/advice/anyone in the same boat as me that has had success? Thanks so much everyone and good luck!!
