Hi All, I have read some of the forums posted by the SDN community over the years and must thank everyone for their insights and assistance with my preparation and anwering alot of the concerns and questions I have had over the years. I'm at the point now where it's time to apply and I am a bit nervous of how competative I will be in CA schools. I have an overall GPA of 3.45 with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a BCPM GPA of 3.50. I scored a 33R on Apr08 MCAT with a 12ps, 11bs, 10vr. I've had about 8hrs/week of clinical volunteer and intern work over the 2006-2007 school year. Since then, I have volunteered on/off non-clinical opportunities. I have not had any real research experience. I am currently working as an receptionist/assistant for a psychiatrist at a private practice and have had opportunities to shadow evaluations and sessions. Any and all comments/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advanced.
