First, a quick background on myself:
I will be graduating in December 2015 from a top-20 university (think Vandy/Duke/Emory) with a BBA in Finance and IT. As far as my stats, my cumulative GPA is a 3.45, and my SAT is CR: 640, M: 680 and W: 700 (2020/2400). I have work experience (internships) in private equity, investment banking and SaaS (Software as a Service). I have worked on M & A transactions with healthcare companies, although I recognize this does not count as medical experience. I know for a fact that I can shadow a few Emergency Physicians during fall semester (I have already spoken personally with them and gotten a guarantee). Outside of the work experience listed above, I have no medical-related experience, apart from shadowing an Emergency physician and working at an orthodontic clinic in high school, which I don't consider relevant at this point since it was roughly 6 years ago.
1. Right now, what do you think my candidacy is like for the top post baccs (preferably Goucher or Bryn Mawr, but also Columbia, U Penn, Johns Hopkins, and possibly others as well) considering my GPA, SAT, and lack of medical work/ volunteer experience?
2. Do you think shadowing 1-3 Emergency Physicians over a 4 month period max would make a significant difference in my candidacy?
3. It's my feeling now that I would be much better off trying to work in some clinical capacity for a year, such as a scribe, before applying to these programs. Do you think this is accurate?
I appreciate advice from anyone, but would love to hear from people in particular who have applied to or gone through the post bacc programs I mentioned above, or other post bacc programs. Thanks!
