Just some brief background. I'm about to graduate in May, GPA close to 3.6, MCAT took twice, first time did horribly, second time 29 (7 PS, 11 VR, 11 BS). My application was complete at all the schools around October. So far, it's been nothing but bad news. All these rejections are really starting to bother me. I talked with my advisor, and a few other people, and we kinda thouhgt maybe the 7 in PS was keeping me back. I have a fair amount of clinical experience, although maybe not as much as the ADCOM's want? As for EC's, I"ve got some leadership positions in a couple clubs, volunteer tutor for local HS kids, a couple music things (I've participated in a couple competitions, played Carnegie Hall, etc.) hospital volunteer, I studied abroad for a semester. I have no research simply because I have zero interest in it. I'm going to speak with somebody from a couple schools that have rejected me to find out what it is I could do to improve my application should the remaining schools not work out. Anyway, what is there to do during the year then? Assuming it is the MCAT score, and I won't have to take off a cycle to improve my grades or get more clinical, is there some sort of job someone could recommend? I would really like something clinical, or something using my degree (biochemistry). And what do you guys think? Could the 7 in PS really hold me back that much even though I got 11's on the other 2 sections? I tried to apply to DO, but I'm having problems getting my transcript from Paris where I studied, and the AACOMAS wants it, and I'm having problems getting a transcript waiver from them.
