My SHPEP experience was 2 years ago. So their advice at that time was quite generic.

Where did you attend SHPEP? In terms of a school list, I would include any/all SHPEP or SMDEP (former) sites since those admissions committees should be familiar with what SHPEP is.

Your in-state options should definitely be included. Military status and having an HPSP assurance will also make you desirable. I'll let others come up with specific lists.
 
URM - black female. SHPEP was at Howard. Connected with the SHPEP faculty on LinkedIn but not in active contact with them. One of my primary mentors there has moved on to other things. Yes, have included my instate schools.

Quick update - got my first A today. To WVSOM (my top choice for DO school as it is close to home)

Thank you again for all the advice. I will stay connected and look forward to helping future pre-meds as I get further in my medical career.
