I was just wondering what my chances were in New Jersey/New York medical schools since I will be applying June 2009. (Am a New Jersey resident) My overall GPA is at 3.67 right now and hoping to ace my spring semester for a overall of 3.74. My science GPA is 3.63 and my major GPA is at 3.79 in Biomed. I haven't taken the MCAT yet (sigh) but I am hoping for a minimum 33 with each section at around 11. My practice exams have been pretty consistent so I have my fingers crossed. My EC's are not too great but I am working on it. I worked in the Emergency department for about 180 hours and working in neuro/cardio surgical rooms ( currently ) aiming for around 120 hours. I have other non clinical volunteering/work experiences such as teaching and tutoring. Since I am taking a year off after I graduate May2009, I am planning to increase my hours in EC's via working or volunteering. I hope I will be more motivated with your comments while I am studying...(Staring down at my examkracker book right now....) Let me know!
