Hi everyone, as I'm getting ready to apply to med school for this upcoming cycle I was wondering if you could please help me with my list of schools? Any help cutting down my list would be greatly appreciated!
I think that you're a very strong applicant.Thanks everyone for all of the help! I was wondering @gyngyn why you think I should remove all the safety/lower-yield schools? I'm just afraid of applying too highly and not getting in anywhere. I was born in Riverside but grew up in OC and have done all my shadowing at Kaiser Riverside, should I still take off UCR?
Also, @Goro @LizzyM @Faha @gyngyn do you think I will be a strong applicant or what my chances are for interviews/acceptances (esp for CA)?
150 hrs of volunteering in Mexico is far more than the typical week people spend on voluntourism. Flying Samaritans seems like the real deal as well.
Do what you love and love what you do.@Goro @Walter Raleigh Thank you both so much for your input! In your opinions, should I stop volunteering with Flying Sams then? I just started this past month and was going to continue until I matriculate, but can stop if it would be detrimental to my app. Also, will I be competitive for my CA and reach schools?
Do you understand what median means??????
