Hey all, I'm a Junior (hopefully matriculating Fall '09). I was wondering what schools are realistic for me and a good match. Obviously this is my decision, and I have been doing my research. I'm not completely relying on an internet forum to make my decision, this is simply another form of research. Stats: Transfer student Currently BBA student at top 5 BBA program, top 20 school overall (is this appropriate to put on my app?) 3.7 overall GPA (got a D and F freshman year, would be 3.9 otherwise) 3.93 science GPA Dean's list all but 1 semester (my first) Gradaute w/ highest honors Anticipated 38 MCAT Varsity soccer 3 years student council senator at large 1 yr Service Organization VP 2 yrs Calc. Tutor (volunteer and paid) 1 yr ER volunteering (3hrs/week) 2.5 yrs started nonprofit mentoring high schoolers 2 yrs Research (hopefully published in good journal) 10hrs/week 2.5 yrs Shadowing, 3 physicians, 50, 50, 100hrs Summer internship in finance at Fortune 50 company At this point in the game (I know, very early) I'm looking at general surgery (trauma? CT?) or perhaps ortho. I would preferably like to be in a big city for med. school. Based on my stats/ECs and what I want from a school, what 10 schools would you all reccomend? Also, how can I find out which schools send what percentage of their students to their top choice residencies? And how can I find out which schools send a high percentage to surgery residencies? How are surgery residencies ranked? Thanks!
