My GPA is 3.8. My science GPA is 4.0. I have no clinical experience as of yet, but I have probably 100 hours of volunteer time on campus at my university and some shadowing. I'm a history major and made this decision recently, too recently to rack up stats needed. MCAT practice tests around 36 with 14-15s in verbal reasoning common. A true humanities person with a strong background in science. My school of choice is Cooper Medical. I love Camden and want to learn and practice there. I love surgery because I love tools. I'm a full time union worker, working on pharmaceuticals and medical devices. I'm a fine woodworker, a clothes designer and assembler, a designer and assembler of musical effects. I can't even stress how badly I want this. It's a lump in my throat constantly, getting worse and worse. Is a year long enough to rack up the extracurriculars I need clinically? I have access to a family practice doctor I can shadow and also 3 local hospitals to volunteer at.
