Hey guys long time lurker here
From TN applying semi-broadly to DO and MD
Major: Biology dual minor
MCAT breakdown: 514 128/125/130/131
cGPA and sGPA are the same because of Bs in stats and calc (smh)
About me: Asian, Immigrant have taken ESL courses in elementary school. Dual-citizen but not american citizen (permanent resident tho). Bilingual.
ECs:
200~ hours shadowing, from cardiology, epilepsy lab at a top teaching hospital and primary care also had DO shadowing.
100~ hours non-medical volunteering done at one organization
100+ hours as CNA
Research involvement since freshman year, multiple presentations, two grants received and submitting for pub near end of the year.
also have some diverse interest ie cricket and longboarding.
Mainly worried about the 125 Cars applied to top tiers such as Emory. Not sure if im competitive with my cars. I can list out the schools im interested in if necessary. applying to two in-states and rest out of state.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated thanks for the help!

Which schools did you apply to? You are definitely competitive for both of your TN schools.

You should delete Meharry and Morehouse because you are not URM. You are competitive for all the DO schools. Your 2 TN state public schools, Jefferson, Penn State and Saint Louis are where your best chances are for MD. Case Western and Emory are also reasonable.

i only applied to meharry because of in state.. but i see your point. any other schools i should add for MD? I know George Washington is big on community service and im not really competitive for that. but my goal is to pursue medical international trips especially to my region.

Yes, even with the CARS score. It's the one subsection that cuts the most slack, and somebody has to be < 10th %ile...why not you?

You are competitive for George Washington but they receive almost 15,000 applications a year. They do interview over 1,000 though. You could add several of the schools that Goro recommended.

DO NOT GO TO TUFTs. They discriminate and mistreat and bully Asian men. Just ask any minority student esp Asian males who have gone to this school. Very bad...unless you enjoy discrimination and mistreatment.
Is that a fact? What if tufs end up being the only school that accept OP?
