  1. Pre-Medical
    Homemaker. Graduated college in 2004. Been out of the workforce since 2006, raising kids. My family and I have decided to widen our net of places to apply. We do not want to live in the south half of the country.

    Location: Oregon
    Undergraduate institution: North Dakota SU
    (Edit)Major: Biology and a minor in Chemistry
    Reapplicant (applied to my state school last year)
    MCAT: 520
    Stats: 3.90 cGPA and sGPA
    Have taken 16 credits recently at a CC, 4.0 there
    Clinical volunteering: about 400 hours within the last 2 years in maternity ward, have volunteered in distant past in ED, surgery, and general inpatient medicine. 16 hours in pop-up free clinics
    Non-clinical volunteering: tons, mostly family-oriented activities
    Shadowing: 50 hours
    Other: 1 publication (research I participated in as a student worker [computer animator, 5 years] regarding science education), have also worked in lower-level retail management. Childhood adversity was a yes (low SES is disclosed in my app, also grew up with parents with substance abuse issues which I have chosen not to disclose and not sure if I should?)

    Edit: I mostly need help generating a school list.
    School list:
    Oregon Health & Science University

    And maybe U of Minn, Mayo, U of Iowa? Only because I am familiar with those institutions and locations. We would also love to live in New England. (I don't want to go to UND and live in ND again!)
