First off, if this needs to be in the nontrad section, sorry. Seeing as how I am wondering about my chances, I thought this would fit here. Right now, I'm extremely EXTREMELY nervous. I wish to apply for med school in 2010, but I don't know if I have any hope of getting accepted. Grades/scores: Graduated in June 2007 at UCSD with a 3.43 GPA with a BCPM at 3.42. MCAT is 32O. EC's: Did undergraduate research for an O Chem lab for awhile. To be honest, it's been so long that I'm not sure I can write anything substantial. I pretty much made amino acid and sugar derivatives so my PI can use them for his experiments. LOR's: Besides a guaranteed one from my Vietnamese teacher, I got nothing. Even from the prof I did research under, he took a position at another college and the few e-mails I attempted to write to him have never been replied. Since graduation: I became a provider and took care of my grandma as she's recovering from cancer (this is a key point in my PS). Other than that, I work at Princeton Review as an O Chem instructor, training to become a phlebotomist (waiting for signatures to send in my app to the state), and work with an organization to raise money and aide to the poor in Vietnam (I even went to Vietnam at the end of 2nd year to distribute supplies to villages). I'm also about to volunteer at a hospital, but haven't started yet. So, yeah. To me, I have a chance, but I'm not too sure. I'm trying to finish up my PS in order to ask other people for LOR's, but in the mean time, I'm stressing out like no other. Any help would be GREAT.
