So you were complete with secondaries late september/early october?? I mean by no means is it a deal breaker, but applying June 1st is night and day difference in terms of opportunities. Assume that you have already been rejected and start working on improving your application for next cycle. If you get interviews, terrific, if not then at least you were prepared by already prepping for next cycle. Apply June 1st with more volunteer, clinical, and shadowing. Idk what your stats were in those terms, but the least you could do is get some solid LOR's from DO docs between know and may. Good luck!
lots of volunteering/clinical/etc.. is too vague. give an approximate #, and what exact kind of volunteering - with people? in hospital? underserved? with animals? environmental? you could have a shortcoming in there.
w/ a 500 mcat i would have applied to more programs.
Scribe at primary care clinic for a yr. current technician at an ophthalmology practice. So prob like 1500+ clinical hours through working. Prob like 200+ clinical volunteering at hospital & another underserved clinic. Shadowed a few DOs like 30 hrs. Two do letters. Tutor for like a yr. & more but I’m replyibg to this on my phone at the gym
Not enough schools with your MCAT
Patience is a virtue!
