    I got into SUNY stony brook medical school. My gpa is good 3.7, MCAT 32, research experince and many other extra curricular activites.

    The problem was that my essay was not good (esl student), and i applied very late (sent my secondaries in nov and dec.)

    I got interviews to Duke and Ucla (waitlisted at both, haven't heard from any)
    I want to do my residency at one of the UC's (Davis or ucsf) so I can stay close to my family after med school.

    Should I apply again next year or should I attend Stony Brook?

    Do stony brook students have a good chance of getting into california residencies. (i want to go into pediatrics)
