I posted earlier this year, but didn't yet have my MCAT or a school list, so I'm looking for more feedback now that I have both. Canadian Non-trad - uGPA/sGPA ~3.65; 4.0 GPA for my biology PhD (only 3 classes) Edit - MCAT balanced 522 (131, 130, 130, 131) 1 first author paper, 2 internal authors. Will have couple more 1st author papers by graduation (~April); 6+ years of research (undergraduate project + PhD) Most significant ECs include: Work experience: 2 years tutor, 2 years (~25hrs/wk) retail (supervisor), 3.5 years work as unit clerk in hospital (~15hrs/wk), 5 years teaching assistant (curent) (~2000hours), Volunteer - 2 years mentor/tutor at a youth correctional facility (~150hours), 1 year Big Sister (~150 hours), 1 year soccer coach (current - 150 hours), 5 years manager/coordinator for 2-3 soccer teams (current) 3 years in leadership positions in health related clubs during undergrad (~300-400hours) Soccer - 5+ years, other intramural sports (field hockey, basketball, flag football - 3 years) (all current) (lots of hours) I don't have any shadowing or clinical volunteering and I'm not sure that my job at the hospital will be considered enough clinical exposure - what do you guys think? So far my list includes: Georgetown SUNY - Syracuse Virginia Commonwealth Darthmouth Boston University Wayne State University of Virginia Saint Louis University Case Western Emory Duke Columbia Cornell University of Pittsburg Northwestern Yale Stanford Any other suggestions? I realize a lot of these are mega-reaches, especially given my GPA. I'm a little confused as to how I should apply given that my GPA is low relative to my MCAT. Any help would be much appreciated!!
