So I need some more help on my school list for adding some late schools. Here is my current list. I am specifically asking about allopathic schools at this point as I feel good about my osteopathic schools. I might add some in the pacific northwest but idk yet.
Stats: 503 MCAT 1st attempt (128,124,125,126), 512 MCAT 2nd attempt (130,126,128,128)
3.42 sGPA (AMCAS), 3.79 cGPA, 3.64 total GPA. GPA for aacomas is slightly different.
1000+ hours of patient contact experience
5 hours of shadowing an ENT DO.
40 hours of volunteering (non-medical)
0 hours of research
I would like to get the new school's primaries out ASAP. What are your recommendations? Help me out!
But the schools dont see evidence of such knowledgeInteresting... Unless I'm completely incapable of observing and combining what I observe with the dialogue I've had, yes I have a very good idea of what a physician does and what their work like is like. But maybe im ******ed
No need to be rude. You asked the question and then you said "maybe im ******ed". Really? Nice attitude.Interesting...

Expression of understanding should be backed up with evidence of healthcare experience in the form of shadowing, employment, patient contact, etc, otherwise they are just words.I would hope that my PS/most meaningfuls/secondaries would make it quite clear why I chose what I did and that I understand the profession. If they didn't, then that is my fault.
Yeah, what she said. Thank you for the "plug" @candbgirl but @JB50 really hasnt been bad about it, considering some of the other crap I have had to put up with this weekend on SDN from a user whose screen name was quite offensive to both women and cats and I wont repeat here. He went from zero to banned in about an hourOP you do know that @gonnif has vast experience in med school admissions right? You seem to be replying like you think he doesn't know what he is talking about. He knows lots and he knows what he's talking about and has helped many people successfully navigate these waters. The reason I'm telling you this is because you need to learn to take suggestions with grace and humility. You never know who you are talking to. Good luck this cycle.

you havent been as I said in a previous post. You are well advised to probe on here. and you werent anywhere near out of line. Dont worry about.Actually @gonnif @candbgirl I haven't been demeaning at all I simply was trying to understand the difference between the experience gathered shadowing versus my patient contact experience. @Goro 's post was what I was looking for so thanks. I've already apologized to you for myself getting defensive earlier. This is the internet. I have a reason to probe the advice given on an internet forum. This is the internet. Stop reading my posts as if every one is defensive.
