Hello guys, This is my first time posting on SDN, but I have been an avid lurker for a while. My Reason for posting today: I don't understand what is going on with my applications. I am an African-American male, my advisor says I should be a sure bet for numerous acceptances. These are my stats: School: Had to edit this out for privacy. Double major: Gen bio and a liberal art. G.P.A: 3.7 MCAT: 30 T PS 11 V 7 BS 12 I know these stats aren't great, but they are well above the MSAR averages for minorities. Some Extracurricula activties: I am certainly not lacking in this area. *I have been president of 3 different organization/clubs with more than 70 members. *Over 500hrs of volunteering and shadowing over a two year period. * Studied abroad * Two years of Cancer research with a publication. * I have worked in a non-profit company which specialized in helping underserved communities. * I am a surveying technician and working on my surveyor license. * A lot of little awards * A lot of little activities to give back to the community. * A lot of other leadership roles and jobs. and for those of you who are wondering, NO I don't have a criminal record or anything close. Not even a parking ticket. I applied to about 15-17 schools and No acceptances yet. I was confident about my chances at the start but now I'm starting to think that something is wrong with my app. Please help.
