Hey everyone-- just made an account because I got my MCAT score back today. Looking for help with my potential school list for the upcoming cycle.

  • Year in school: Graduated in May 2020
  • ORM male
  • State of Residence: Wisconsin
  • Undergrad institution: VA state school
  • cGPA: 3.91
  • sGPA: 3.9
  • MCAT: 519 (130/129/131/129)
  • Research
    • None
  • Clinical Experience
    • ~200 hours volunteering in a regional ED during college
  • Shadowing (concerning)
    • Virtual shadowing during the pandemic through UTSW
    • Planned to get shadowing during gap year, but the pandemic made that tough
  • Non-clinical volunteering
    • Tutoring elementary school kids: 2 years during undergrad about 250 total hours
    • Local autism center for kids: 30 hours
  • Extracurriculars
    • Social Fraternity
      • leadership positions: Health and Safety Officer, Vice President
    • Swim club member
    • UAID member (helped organize fundraisers)
  • Employment
    • Summer job in college: Camp Director for a summer program for financially challenged families through a county government
    • Current: FT employee for an EHR company
I plan to apply for the HPSP and to USUHS if that factors for anything

For the list I made I filtered around on the MSAR for stats and also for OOS favorability, beyond that I am a bit lost haha

Current list (MD)
Albany
Case Western
Hofstra
Drexel
GW
Georgetown
Temple
Medical College of Wisconsin
UPenn
University of Vermont
Thomas Jefferson
Tufts
Tulane
USUHS
UW Madison

UNE COM​

You have a great application. The only weak link is the research - if you could do something to fill in that gap, you would be a strong applicant for many top tiers.

For now I think your list is okay but I would add a few schools from the upper tier (Sinai, Cornell, Michigan, Emory come to mind as examples). I don't think you need DO applications.

    Could add Dartmouth, Emory, Michigan. Look at MSAR for other possibilities.
