Hello -

I am a few years post graduation, having worked in academic science since my junior year. Intended for a career in research, but I've decided I want to make the switch to medicine. I don't think that quite qualifies me as 'non-trad', but correct me if I am wrong. My goal is to stay in NYC (sig. other, family, life).

So... how do I look?

cGPA 3.8, sGPA3.7

MCAT: practice tested in mid-30s, awaiting May 12 results

4+ yrs research experience/lab management (developmental genetics - basic research, but much experience training others, managing personnel, general 'lab stewardship', in addition to benchwork, at CUMC in Manhattan)

150+ hrs clinical volunteering - telemetry floor at neighborhood hospital, working w CHF pts, educating about diet/lifestyle/meds, helping nurses etc

EC: writing/poetry credentials, published, curated reading series, shown work at MoMA in Manhattan

Specifically (solely?) interested in SUNY Downstate - want to focus on clinical experience, like working in Brooklyn, appreciate in-state tuition vs other city schools.

Thoughts? Would appreciate input.

Thanks all!

With NY residency you should be fine. Apply to some private schools too, you have great stats. Good luck
