I am wondering if anyone out there can help me gauge as to the number of schools that I should respond to from the schools that have sent me a secondary. On my AMCAS application, I checked off close to thirty schools and recently, I have received secondaries from many of the schools. I have received secondaries from some pre-screening schools as well(but not all, especially the top schools). I have not been rejected from anywhere, yet. I realize that people on this forum do not make admissions decisions, but I am overwhelmed because of the number of forms that I have to fill out. My credentials are: 3.3 GPA in biochem from Berkeley 9 VR, 12 BS, 14 PS, R WS I have done some community and medicine related exrtracurriculars and am familiar with two foreign languages. Though, the strength of my application lies in my extensive research experience, with a first author paper from a top lab. Should I focus on the top level schools or is that a waste of time and I would be better suited at a mid or low level school? As I have already stated, I have too many secondaries and I am trying to figure out a good game-plan for the next phase. If anyone can give me some helpful pointers, I would appreciate that very much.
