I am a first time reapplicant and during my year off I am founding and programming a software startup. I am taking MBA level entrepreneurial classes at the same time. I am hoping it is seen as evidence of initiative, hard work ethic, leadership, and intellectual flexibility... what I am afraid of is that it may cast a cold-business or money-hungry light on my application. The startup is essentially a way to connect people... Any thoughts on how I could avoid being seen as looking to medicine because it is a safe financial choice or some other cold business equivalent? In case it helps my application stats in a nutshell: 3.55 gpa (both science and cumulative about) BS Biology UNC in 3 years with strong upward trend (3.0 freshman year with no Cs but no As either) MCAT first attempt before physics and orgo: 32O 9VR 10PS 13BS second MCAT attempt: 35N 10VR 11PS 14BS 5 years clinical experience, 1 year research with my own project and grant but no publications, and president of UNC Rotaract.
