      Unless you attended U Washington or are a former resident remove that school. Also remove Stanford and Case Western since your MCAT is not competitive for those schools. UNC accepts few non residents with no connection to the state. You should receive several interviews from the other schools on your list.

        Stanford was just my throwaway school to get verified. I was a former resident for WA. Thank you for the advice!

          FYI I believe Emory screens out applicants who have a MCAT subsection under 125.

          Edit: just rechecked and it’s actually under 123. So just ignore this lol. You should be good to go.

            Einstein wouldn’t screen out a 503?
