I am a senior at UCSD who ha recently decided that the medical field would suit me best. It has been a long journey from math to physics to biophysics, and although I think I could explain why I want to do this, I don't have much to show for it. I have a 3.45 overall gpa with 3.2 in science, but it has been going up. I am expecting 3.6 overall with 3.4 in science. I have been averaging 29-32 on practice mcats, and I have until jan 30 to prepare. I volounteer at the red cross and am trying I get a volounteer spot in a hospital. Also, I plan to get my emt liscence in the spring. Which I will have for a year until I apply in 2010. I realize I won't be very competitive this spring, so I am applying during my last quarter (I transfered from a JC, so it will be 5 years total to graduate). What can I do during the next year to became a competitive late start applicant?
