Hey guys, I'm an OMS-3 and I'm looking to do AOA general surgery. I'd be willing to match anywhere.

Stats:
3.7 GPA (top 25% of class)
546 COMLEX (ugh...)

others: research award with oral presentation, will have great letters of rec, very good well rounded application (president of a club on campus, volunteer work, etc), likable personality.

Lets hear what you guys think. Thanks in advance!
