      @Faha Thanks so much for the list--that's very helpful! @MyOdyssey To be honest pretty fair grading/maybe slight deflation, I'm not sure how well known that would be. The first university I attended for undergrad is well known for grade deflation though.

        With GPA/MCAT, you better get some attention at all your Ohio in-state schools. Any other domestic clinical exposure while you were an undergrad?

        Unfortunately no other domestic clinical exposure in undergrad. I'm not sure how my planned clinical experience will work out during my second gap year. My volunteering with those affected by dementia in undergrad was in a long-term care facility with patients, but I'm not sure if it would be considered clinical. Thanks for the help!

          Depending on what you did at the LTC facility, it could be considered clinical. What were you doing?

            Hi, everyone! I’m applying this coming cycle while currently finishing a masters abroad. I’m a bit unsure of how to craft my school list with my GPA/MCAT combo. I also was wondering if anyone had advice on schools that reward upward trends in GPA or that tend to have students who have taken a gap year or two. I’m currently doing a Master of Research degree in the UK (all lab work with some lectures). I would really appreciate some advice—haven’t posted before so hopefully it’s all formatted right!
            So far really interested in all my state schools and wasn’t sure how to navigate high-ranked schools with my MCAT and sGPA combo. If quoting this post could be avoided that would be great--thanks so much everyone! :)
            I suggest the following, but invest in MSAT and rule out schools where your GPAs are < their 10th %iles.
            NYU
            Columbia
            WashU
            Vanderbilt

              I would visit once a week and spend time with a resident who had dementia: the focus of the campus volunteering group was to try to stimulate memory and conversation through music, and I would either play piano or listen to some of the resident's favorite songs with him in his room. It was a facility that provided long-term care for people with dementia and post-acute care for people discharged from hospitals.
