Good evening,

I am simply seeking advice as to which medical schools would be best to apply to with my stats and EC's. In a perfect world, I would like schools that are more eastward but I know that when it comes to medical schools admissions beggars cant be choosers. I represent the African American community. With that being said here is a little background:

-505 MCAT
-Shadowed for 4 years:

Anesthesiologist-284 hrs
Vascular surgeon-30 hrs
Ophthalmologist-10 hrs
-MSICU volunteer- 100 hrs
-Mental health hospital intern-100 hrs
-Summer/Semester worth of cancer research under professor (no poster presentation)
-Biology tutor- 2 years
-Executive board member of fraternity
-Worked part time-
3 years
-Graduating with honors (Most likely means nothing, I know, just thought id add it)
-Member of multiple clubs on campus (pre-med club, etc.)

LORs from committee packet/ anesthesiologist

Any advice/ constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated and thank you to whoever takes the time to look at and respond to my thread

Chances best with your state schools, the HBCs (don't forget UCLA-Drew) and at least Keck, UWV, IU, and perhaps the state schools in neighboring states.

Are you from PA or NJ?????

Add NYMC, U Miami, and SUNY-DS.

Delete the NJ schools if you're not from NJ (super IS bias).

Add any DO school except LUCOM.

Delete the NJ schools and TCMC. Add VCU, Gtown, GWU, and EVMS. Va Tech is too small and quirky to get a handle on for me. U MD should be at the top of your list!

Thanks again and i'm from MD
