  1. cGPA and sGPA as calculated by AMCAS or AACOMAs: 3.2 uGPA ; SMP GPA 3.7x
  2. MCAT score(s) and breakdown: 519
  3. State of residence or country of citizenship (if non-US): Northeast
  4. Ethnicity and/or race: White
  5. Undergraduate institution or category: Top 20
  6. Clinical experience (volunteer and non-volunteer): currently working as medical assistant at a hospital (500 hours) with another 1800 anticipated over past year, 1000 hours as clinical research coordinator
  7. Research experience and productivity: >8000 hours, 1 poster, 1 publication
  8. Shadowing experience and specialties represented: ~100 hours
  9. Non-clinical volunteering: 200 hours as tutor; 400 hours volunteer at soup kitchen
  10. Other extracurricular activities (including athletics, military service, gap year activities, leadership, teaching, etc): 1000 Hours leadership on student organization
  11. Relevant honors or awards: N/A
  12. Anything else not listed you think might be important: I first applied in 2022 and had an unsuccessful cycle with only 1 II. Last year I did a half-hearted reapplication to only a few schools, which was a waste of time. Having secured a clinical job, I'm feeling a bit better for this cycle. I still have way more research than clinical exposure . Looking for advice for a school list for a nontrad heavy on research with low uGPA/ high MCAT.

What assistance will your SMP faculty provide for your application? Where have past students with similar profiles attended medical school?
My SMP faculty have given me some very good suggestions but they seemed to think I had a good shot in the previous cycle when I got just 1 II. I felt the advice was overly optimistic. I also think my profile was quite a bit different than all of my friends in the program as I have a lower uGPA, higher MCAT and more research.

Thanks, most of these schools were on my radar. I didn't know about the new medical schools (Walton, Roseman) but I'm not sure if they're open for this cycle.
