A bit about me-
Undergrad degree: supply chain management and marketing from a top 30 business school.
Undergrad GPA: 3.57
Post-Bacc/sGPA: 3.97 (I took no sciences undergrad).
MCAT: 517 (130/126/130/131)
Residence: Illinois
Not disadvantaged.
EC's: 1,200+ hours scribing, international EMS experience (300 hours), patient transport (120 hours)
No research, didn't really have time to fit it in, since I only decided on medicine recently.

So far:
Rosalind Franklin
UIC
Rush
Loyola
Northwestern
U Chicago
Ohio State
Colorado
UCLA
Michigan
Wisconsin (Madison)
Baylor
Miami (FL)

Any other schools I should be looking at in my wheelhouse? Maybe with a preference towards nontrads? Unsure about my lack of research. Hoping to add ~10 to this list but unsure of the direction with my weird trajectory.

Thanks in advance guys!

Add Tulane, Dartmouth, Emory, Creighton, Einstein, Hofstra, SLU.

Remove Baylor, UCLA.

Do you have much volunteering? If not, remove Rush.

The second two opportunities were volunteering. So over 400 hours.

Baylor and UCLA are definitely reaches but I figure why not. I need a few in there.

Added Einstein for now. Thanks so much for the help!

So, no nonclinical volunteering, then? Definitely remove Rush.

You could also add Seton Hall, Quinnipiac, Jefferson, Drexel, Temple, NYMC, Albany

Northwestern and UChicago are reaches. Baylor and UCLA are donations.

How exactly are patient transport (within a medical center) and EMS volunteering not clinical?
Just curious.

They are clinical. I’m saying you don’t have any NONclinical volunteering and Rush screens for applicants who have thousands of hours.
