    3.5, 36, honors thesis, 2 publications in 3 years research, 300+ hours shadowing in field that I want to pursue, secondary research experience in said field (with another pub here), 8 months mentoring disadvantaged kids, service trip abroad, 3 years intercollegiate athletics.

    Just do what you like. If you're passionate about what you do, you'll interview at enough schools to find one that you fall in love with.
