He is a very strong URM candidate... Most schools will filter to select for these candidates first because they have to grab the strong candidates like Dr. Bob before everyone else doesHow is 21 II and 2 acceptances even possible at this point in the cycle lol. If thats true congrats but i'm still skeptical
Isn't his lizzyM score like 64?He is a very strong URM candidate... Most schools will filter to select for these candidates first because they have to grab the strong candidates like Dr. Bob before everyone else does
2 MD II here though
Plus, you're the 'President' (Deity Dictator) of North Korea, which might raise an eyebrow or two. Then again, you have scored an 18 on a golf course, so who should be judging whom?
Statistically ull get in..keep ur head up its super early
Amen. All you have to do, JH6644, is (a) make sure your writing is okay and (b) not come off as a sociopath or weirdo at your future interviews. You got a 90%+ chance of matriculating somewhere.
a) I wouldn't say my plan B to med school is becoming an author but I think my writing is okay and b) I'll be sure to not show off my sociopathic side during my interviewsAmen.

n=1 here, but that is my story too and I have 0 II's
I very much remember the anxiety I had last year when I was in your shoes at the very end of August. Don't fall into the neurotic SDN trap. My LizzyM was around 72, I completed bulk of my secondaries in August and mid-September. My first interview invite came in the last week of August. Then one more in late September. Then three more in October. Then two more in January. Then two more in February. Then two more in March. One of my interviews was scheduled for middle of April of this year.Also 0 II, 3.92/521, complete at most schools right at the beginning of August
When you are complete for different schools on different dates does that mean you added some schools later?Kinda nice to see others in same boat; a reminder that it's still early in the cycle. You can get a bit psyched being all of the II posts on threads.
~3.8GPA, 522MCAT, 1 MD II. Complete at 18/20 schools by early August, 2/20 by mid-August.
Well that is the case here in that those two schools were added in early August. I don't know about others, but I did not turn all my secondaries in at the same time! So early August isn't just vague for the sake of anonymity, but also late July into early August I was turning in a couple of secondaries a day. Shame on me though, several of those I'd had for 30+ days . I did them all in a dedicated spurt of intense writing and revision.When you are complete for different schools on different dates does that mean you added some schools later?
Hopefully, I don't offend - but based on listening to and reading about experiences of blacks and women independently, I think social norms and infrastructure are stacked against you enough as it is, that is acceptable to call yourself super URM . That said, I have no idea how well black women are represented in the medical profession. Based on "The Vanishing Physician Scientist", I do know that at the top tier, at least in academic medicine, women are still abysmally represented, never mind race. But alas, I'm in danger of derailing the thread!Poor, black woman. Exaggerating on the super, Maybe if I was military, poor, black + native american, and LGBTQ+ I would qualify as super URM hahaha
