Why do you think you were waitlisted at WMed? You look like you are making up for not don't much nonclinical service orientation activities last cycle.
I think I was waitlisted at Wmed and lacked other interviews in general due to my lower than average number of service/non-clinical volunteering hours. Would you agree? My hours for 2024 cycle were slightly lower than in list

Forgot to mention I had a ME major, connections now at OSU and NorthW. I appreciate you adding to my list though. They appear to be in my "target" range
