    So far I have 25 schools that I am applying to:

    Creighton
    David Geffen School of Medicine- UCLA
    Drexel
    George Washington
    Georgetown
    Jeffereson
    Keck school of Med- USC

    I need 5 more schools, any suggestions? I wanted to buy the MSAR but they don't have it at the bookstores anywhere close to my house. I want to submit my application either today or tomorrow

    BTW should I bother applyng to UI? Are most of their students Illinois residents? I couldn't find it on their website

    Thanks!

    That's a large list, keep in mind how much it's going to cost you to apply.

    I didn't apply to Illinois because of their fairly small percentage of OOSers.

    What's the rush on the primary if you aren't taking the MCAT until July? You won't have scores until August!! I would personally recommend getting a copy of MSAR (online) and wait a few weeks.

    I have the Fee Waiver, so I can apply to 12-13 schools for free. I want to apply to 30

    I know I won't get my scores till August, but I want to make sure I that I at least get verified early. I guess I'll order the MSAR online...

    It's impossible to give a reasonable assessment without more information than your state of residence and gpa. What are getting in practice MCATs? What are your EC's? What makes you unique? If you want actual help from SDN, you need to give the reader more to work with. Your list of schools includes many competitive ones that typically accept only the most outstanding students.

    Holy crapola, 30 schools sounds like a lot (although I applied to 10 and got screwed, so don't listen to me).

    Just wanted to note that my local University library had an updated copy of the MSAR available. Might want to check that first...

    We now have a "What Are My Chances?" subforum designed for questions such as this. I am moving this thread there now.

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm really concerned about my list of schools please help me out!

    Here is some more info:
    -2 years of biochem research/poster presentation
    -a lot of shadowing/externships
    -EMT certificate (looking for a job)
    -tutoring ~1 year
    -volunteering in hospital ~100 hours
    -mentoring program, 1 year
    -alot of leadership experience, president, vice president, treasurer, secretary (2 different clubs)
    -academic acheivement award/deans honor roll

    Again I'm a California resident, I have a 3.52 overall gpa and am retaking my MCAT in July. I took AAMC 3 and got a 24 (with about 75% of review remaining) , but I will try me best to get a 30..

    Please help me out people! :)
