I'm a reapplicant. I'm worried about my app even though the I had met with McCluggage over the summer (LSUNO) and he implied that all I needed to strengthen my app was to get health care experience. He said that my numbers were good.
People (those not applying to med school) don't realize how stressful this process is. I just hate waiting! The waiting makes me think of back up plans to med school like getting a PharmD or something. It's even harder cause I can't stand my engineering job right now even though it pays so well. It's not what I want to do with the rest of my life. I'm so ready to start...the hard work, challenge, etc.....I get pumped just thinking about it!!!
I guess if I were married like you I wouldn't mind going to Shreveport. I would soooo miss my friends in BR and New Orleans!
Medapp03, I think you'll have no problem getting an interview at LSUNO. Being married with a kid is a huge plus in addition to your high GPA. Your MCAT is OK....your score is BALANCED, no 7's so I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
I sent my secondary on Sep 16th (as a reapplicant, I didn't have to spend much time on i) and I got the postcard on around Sep 22.
