Hi! I’ve already been verified but I wanted to make sure that my list isn’t too top heavy. I excluded some details for privacy reasons. I would love suggestions for any appropriate mid/low tiers I can add, thanks!! I want to keep my list below 33. I know my stats are high but I’m ORM from CA and my ECs might be cookie cutter with low shadowing hours D:
  1. cGPA: 3.95 ; sGPA: 3.99 (Bio major)
  2. MCAT score: 523
  3. State of residence: CA
  4. Demographic: ORM female
  5. Year: graduated senior
  6. Clinical experience: Hospital volunteer in underserved area (250 hrs, 350 projected, MME), paid medical assistant and receptionist at a private practice (2200 total projected), paid optometry tech (900 hr)
  7. Research experience: immuno lab (1500 hrs, wrote seniors thesis, no pubs, 2 presentations at school-wide symposiums, awaiting mid-author publication at end of year, MME), cancer research lab over the summer (450 hr)
  8. Shadowing experience: Emergency med (30 hr during downtime at hospital volunteering), pathology (10 hr). Concerned that this is on the low side but I hope my clinical experience can make up for this.
  9. Nonclinical Volunteering: sorority fundraising and volunteering for partner philanthropy (200 hr), officer in humanitarian org on campus (300 hr, good LOR from manager of this org, MME)
  10. Extracurriculars: did a lot of dance, 2 leadership positions in other student orgs (~400 hr combined)
  11. Awards: university research fellowship, multiple academic/leadership/merit awards from university and biology department
  12. LORs: I think that 3/4 LOR will be quite good, but 1 of them is expected to be more generic
  13. Interested in rural health: I’ve had no experiences in rural health, so no
These are the schools I’ve sent my primary to. This list has already been vetted by multiple friends/advisor/myself, but maybe SDN will have diff suggestions! I made sure to apply to all my state schools except Loma and UCR (no regional ties)
