I am still in awe of how there is no way to know how competitive you are for schools. Unlike med schools where you knew their average numbers and scores etc. So my situation is i got to roughtly the 45th ranked medical school. I got a 218 on step 1, and have honored half my 3rd year rotations and plan to do as well or better on step 2. I want to go to california or arizona and just wondering what type of programs should i even waste time applying to. For example should i even apply to programs like ucla, ucsd? or should i stick to community programs? and if so what are the real odds that i can get into something like ucla etc on a purely numbers stats. thanks so much i know these posts are annoying but im trying to make a list of schools and just have no clue how to decide-my advisor has also been useless. thanks!
