Well, just to give a background on myself...I have a poor undergrad record (cumm.2.5/sci.under2.5). I went back to school as a post-bacc and have been taking a mix of graduate level/undergrad courses at the same university where I did my undergrad. After a year, my gpa will be around 3.5 cumm./3.7 sci. I was a full-time student in the Fall qtr., took one course Winter quarter (studied for DAT...19acad/20pat), then went back as a fulltime student spring qtr. So in essence, I have 2 qtrs of good grades to show for myself. I have also done research at a biotech company, and am currently doing research for my o'chem professor. In addition, I have also been volunteering about 4hrs/week at a dental office...so far total of approx 80 hours. My questions: 1. To all the people who advise applying early, should I wait for my Summer quarter grades and apply in September? Or should I just send in my application in July? Will a year of postbacc (2 fulltime quarters and 1 part-time quarter) get me any interviews? 2. Also, all the work I have done as a postbacc is showing up on my transcript as 'Graduate Academic Record'. Should I put everything under graduate work on the AADSAS app.? I had called up AADSAS and they told me 'do whatever you feel is right, since they are just a processing agency'. 3. I am planning on applying to 20-25 schools across the country since I don't really know what my chances are. Do you think I should split up and apply to the fisrt half, and if I don't get any interview invites then send in the app to the second half? How soon does one start getting invites after they have submitted the app to AADSAS? Any input would be greatly appreciated, (especially from all the people who have been to interviews). I am currently working on my personal statement, and will start on the application May 15th. THanks!!!
