SO I'm accpeted to both. I have a 32 MCAT and a 3.56 GPA. Im leaning towards Tulane because of its proximity to Texas. I was wondering which of the two programs would better help my resume for reapplying this upcoming cycle.
Thanks for the self esteem boost! I applied almost everywhere in Texas and a few places out of state like University of Colorado, UCF, UC Davis, University of Oklahoma. I know I didnt apply to as many places as I should have( Only applied to 5 instate and 6 out of state). The only feed back I received on my application was that I didn't have any ECs that were not medical related. All my ECs were in fact medical related as I was an EMT-B, extensive shadowing, medical trips to Latin America, and a part of some prehealth professional organizations such as the Hispanic Health Professions Organization.
To my credit, I did have volunteering other than that such as Food Bank and Soup Kitchen Volunteering. But the hours were measly compared to my medically related ECs so I didn't bother including them on my apps.
I figure if I am reapplying, I will have a year in between applying and matriculating (hopefully). So I figured I would enhance my resume by taking an SMP and earning a Masters in one year rather than sitting on my ass stressing over acceptances/rejections.
