Have a tribal card? Evidence of service to Native American communities?

If so, add WashU (you read that correctly) and any other schools you'd like to attend.

I can't recommend Penn State.

I do have a tribal card and some service hours within the Cherokee community but would I not get my MCAT score screened out before II's went out at WashU?

If not, are there any other schools you would recommend that strongly prefer URM?
