Already applied early this cycle with a few mid-tier IIs. Just wondering if I should add more mid tier schools to the list. Worried that my list is too top heavy and I'm not competitive for top 20.
Very good list. Perhaps add Emory, U AZ, U Miami

Thank you for the feedback! I was mainly worried how my multiple MCATs would be received. Based on your responses, I assume it's a non-issue or at least not that big of a deal?

A 528 score can assuage even those who look down upon multiple takes.

You have a 528... Apply to all t20 and you'll get in no matter what. How'd you even pull that off from high 80th %ile range?
