519 / 3.98 stats. Hello, I have been a lurker for a while. I just wanted honest opinions about my chance with top schools. I am an URM (latino male) and cancer survivor. I wrote about my ordeal and what I learned throughout the process. I have diverse research experience but no publications. I have volunteering experience with underserved communities. I was also treated for my cancer and surgeries at one particular top medical school. I hoped these experiences would help my chances, but I am wondering if my past diagnosis might make schools weary about investing in me. Cancer survivors have a much higher mortality rate and although everything seems fine now (knock on wood), I want to know if adcomms would consider the risks associated with a survivor?
