I?m new to this website. What advice can you give me? I'm a single mom and working hard towards my BS and I should graduate in 2006 and I hope to start med school that Fall. I?m in the process of taking my science classes now, and so far my GPA is a 4.0, I have done a lot of community service in the and out of the medical world. I have not done any research. How can I make myself a better candidate, and also what I can do to make sure I have a high MCAT score, to make sure I have a good chance of getting in? I also noticed that a lot of people have already started applying to schools, and that they are applying to at least 10 schools. I do have 4 already in mind. Thanks for any help you can give.
