    200 hours clinical volunteering, 50 hours of shadowing, over 300 hours across two different research projects (no publications), TA & tutored general and organic chemistry. I'm a nontrad with a previous degree in marketing & MBA. Worked in marketing for six years prior to doing a post-bacc.

    I want to make sure I'm not overlooking any schools in my application list. I hit a rough personal patch before my MCAT, and I feel like my score reflects it. Do we think my "dream" schools of UCSF, NYU, and Columbia are out of the picture?

          Thoughts on me adding Oregon Health & Science and UNC Chapel Hill? Oregon has 18 students over 30 according to MSAR, and I really like that. UNC takes such a low percentage of OOS that I feel like I'm not in the range. If neither of those I have VCU as my third option. If I could afford to add all three I would!
