It's very hard to tell given that you'll be a 3x MCAT taker. Most internationals are superstarsHello,
I want to thank you in advance for your help.
I am a Canadian citizen hoping to get admission to an MD medical school.
A little about myself, This is my first time applying to Us medical school, however, it is my 4th time applying to Canadian Medical schools. My cGPA is 3.86. I have written MCAT 2 times scoring 504 and 507. I am writing my 3rd MCAT in a couple of days and I am pretty sure I can score 515+.
As for my CV;
I have 500 hours of clinical volunteering in 2 hospitals
also 2 years worth of volunteering in a clinic and shadowing
3 Research positions. I have done an independent study in one of the labs with multiple presentations and submitting a full report. however no publication.
I have tutoring, mentoring
President of a club.
Continuing student scholarships only. no other awards.
Self-taught program writer and designer have been part of 2 or 3 major projects.
Drawing which helped me a lot in digital design
Worked as a photographer in a studio one summer
Worked as a website designer for a private clinic 2 years
Currently working in sales
and some other minor stuff.
I was planning to submit my primary application sooner however the whole covid-19 situation did not help and now I am at a point where I am looking to submit the primary in September.
I have already worked on some of the secondaries and I can return them in less than a week once I receive them.
I know my odds are very low as a Canadian to get interviews, especially applying this late. However, this is probably the last year that I am applying and did not want to move on without trying the USMD. I was wondering if I really get a good score on MCAT, is there a chance for me to get any interviews?!
