Please do not quote OP! Hi all-- I was here earlier in the month with a preliminary school list, which Faha helped me out with a bit. I made a spreadsheet and narrowed it down to these 30 schools -- I want to start writing for my primaries and statements. To get this list, I took advice from earlier threads, as well as MSAR data, LizzyM data, prospective Dr Data, and Wedgedog's list to make a spreadsheet that weighted the important factors and eliminated outliers. Here is what I came up with. Stats-- cGPA: 3.66 sGPA: 3.42 MCAT: 518 Undergrad: University of Pittsburgh Residency: Pennslyvania Ethnicity: Mexican (URM) Specialty of Choice: Psych LizzyM: 71.4 Wedgedog: 80-84 Note Worthy Experience-- 2 Poster Presentations (discovered a bacteriophage, annotated genome) Geologic Research Project (120 hours) 1000 hours Child Psychiatric Technician Work with at risk youth (specialize in violent trauma population) 400 hours Hospital Psychiatric Technician 2 Independent Research Projects (Meta-analysis) resulting in presentations State Government (Involving another 2 independent research projects and presentations focused on mental health) 100 hours shadowing (ObGyn, Psych, IM) 200 Hours Misc Volunteering Non-Clinical (Soup Kitchen) 100 Hours ED Volunteer 1 semester undergrad TA 2 years experience teaching children math and reading at various levels Blue Collar Jobs Idiosyncrasies JV --> Club Tennis Active in biking community Musician (I was in a band in college.

What's the word on my current list as it stands?
