    I just got my MCAT scores back and I'm pretty disappointed; I scored higher on every AAMC practice test, and got a 519 on the one immediately before testing. I had been using the averages of my practice scores to compile my list, but now that doesn't work anymore, so now I need some help compiling a new school list.

    1. cGPA: 3.71 sGPA: 3.55 MCAT: 511 (125/130/126/130)
    worried that this score is really unbalanced and I have two C's, one in gen chem first semester of freshman year, and one in biochem my junior year. I have a 4.0 since then however, so some upward trend? I'm mostly worried that this makes me look really weak in chem and bio.

    3. I have probably around 150-200 hours volunteering in the ED, a good portion of which was spent shadowing ED physicians and a couple hours with neurologists and a neurosurgeon

    4. ~800 hours in a regenerative neuroscience lab, no publications

    5. as far as non-clinical volunteering, I don't have a ton. I have volunteered with a memory center (20 hrs), and with middle school students teaching robotics and music (20 and 40 hrs, resp.)

    6. leadership: have spent 3 years as an RA, on the board of the university's campus programming committee, last summer and the coming summer will spend in Alaska teaching boy scouts rock climbing

    taking a gap year; I applied for a Fulbright ETA to Vietnam, and if I don't get that, I plan on working on application weaknesses.

      Your best chances are your LA state public schools and Tulane. You could try OOS schools such as:
      Quinnipiac
      New York Medical College
      Drexel
      Temple
      Jefferson
      George Washington
      Oakland Beaumont
      Rosalind Franklin
      St. Louis
      Creighton
      NOVA MD
      any new schools that open in 2019 (Kaiser, Roseman, Seton Hall)
