Hispanic male. Graduated with degrees in music and biology in 2012. Hard to tell how much any of my musical achievements are worth, but I have a few. Overall, I feel I compare well with a successful applicant in the aspects of community service/medical shadowing experience. My strongest experience has been in research, which I've been involved in for the past two years full time, but the past 5 years part time/summers. I have two publications and have been acknowledged in two other papers (is this worth anything?). Would taking a full load of course retakes and upper level biology courses this coming Spring be enough to push me over?
