    During undergrad I scored a really sweet gig as a standardized patient at what is now my school of choice. I worked as an SP for two years, a cadaver lab monitor for one. I had to quit when I moved out of state, but I've been back for a couple years now working elsewhere. I never met anyone involved with admissions (that I know of) while I was working. I'm pretty sure I was a good employee, and I feel like I had a good relationship with everyone I worked with.

    Despite my early submission of my secondary (mid July), I have yet to hear back from said school. I feel like I am a strong applicant: sgpa 3.38, cgpa 3.45, MCAT (10, 11, 10). Is there any chance my history with the school reflects negatively on my application?

    Absolutely not, the whole thing is a crap shoot and is completely random. But there is no way that your time working there would be viewed negatively.
