I promised myself I'd never make a post like this. Oh well. I currently have a 3.9+ GPA from a public liberal arts school. I'm taking the MCAT May 11th (practice scores in the 30-33 range). I've worked in a hospital for four years, volunteered in a hospital and in the community over the past two years, tutored this semester, blah blah blah... I'm applying MD/PhD this cycle. I have a year of biological research. Is this enough? The PI I met up with last summer was starting research on a new animal model, and essentially let me set up the entire project. I wrote a grant proposal (and got my grant), presented my research at a small conference this semester, and will continue this research for the next year. I also began psychological research two months ago, and will work on that project this summer. Is a little over a year of research enough? Both projects have been essentially my own; I'm not a test tube monkey. I've also designed an individualized major for myself which has me continuing my bio research for my remaining time as an undergrad as a requisite for graduation. The people who post on here with 3+ years of research are making me neurotic. I'm not applying to many (if any) top-20 schools, mostly low- to mid-tier (if med schools and MSTP programs can be described as such...). Drum roll please - what are my chances?
