After I had a terrible first year(I was subject to dismissal for awhile:eek:) I got my act together, added a double major(now on a five year plan) and moved on. Now that I have one more year before application time comes around, I'm nervous that my first year is going to hang me.

These are my schools:
1. University of Washington (I know about the OOS stats, but I really want it)
2. UCSF
3. David Geffen UCLA
4. Keck USC
5. Loma Linda
6. UC Davis
7. UC Irvine
8. USCD
(If I can't get into my #1, then I want to be closer to home)

What do you guys think? Any other options?

Thanks in advance

Your first year won't hang you. You look to have a very good application. I suggest, however, considering the competitiveness of California's in-state applicants, that you include more than one out of state school.

You're looking good, but you will need to apply to more schools. Consider schools like MCW, Creighton, Baylor, Albany, Loyola...basically look at the mid-tier private schools, with some upper-tier thrown in (Baylor, Vandy, Emory, etc.). You've opened doors by doing well on the MCAT...congrats!
