Hey All, This is my first post and first time using this web-site. I went through my first application last year on my own, everything was a little hectic because I was just returning from a year in Germany studying abroad. I applied to 15 schools, was interviewed at 3, of which I was denied at 2 and waitlisted at UMDNJ-NJMS Could anyone help me brainstorm what weak points there may have been in my application? science gpa 3.7 overall gpa 3.7 MCAT 34N Phys 14 Bio 11 Verbal 9 EC/Activities Two semesters of research: over 400 hours I had no shadowing until after my amcas was out because I was abroad for the entirety of my junior year, but I shadowed about 100 hours by the time I interviewed Active in athletic clubs My AMCAS was verified late. The spring semester in Germany doesnt end until mid July, and I took the MCAT about 4 weeks after returning, so it was verified mid september. Its looking like i'll have to reapply, so here are my real questions: What could have gone wrong in my case? Where should I be looking to apply this second round? What should I hurry up and do beforehand?
