Unless you are URM you can delete Howard. Columbia is a reach. If you are applying this year you need to apply this week and submit all your secondaries by September.

I'll be sure to remove Howard from my list. I've been writing my secondaries and am almost done with most of them. Are there any schools that I should look into adding?

Great GPA, awesome MCAT, and excellent ECs. You have a really good chance of acceptance, especially at NJ schools, assuming you wrote decent secondaries and can interview well. Good Luck!

Hi so I have submitted all of my secondaries and everything by August 17th and I understand that it is basically a waiting game at this point but is there any time period by which I should have secured atleast one interview?
My primary was verified in June however my committee letter and LOR's are what delayed my application from being fully completed. I had everything done by August 17th for all schools. I'm just not sure as to whether that is really late or not, thank you. Also should I have considered applying DO?

Thank you very much!

With similar stats (3.85/513 mcat no retake, scribing, lots of shadowing) but without as much research you may want to consider adding Penn State
