You should receive several interviews from the schools you applied to. You could add UP-KYCOM and ARCOM.

You're a Pacific Islander...which is considered URM. Will you try for a few MD schools as well? :)

@Goro @Faha @gyngyn

Is Pacific Islander given more flexibility as a URM? Would you recommend he/she add some MD schools with their stats? Or is it somewhat late and not worth adding?
It carries more weight at Burns.
We have seen an uptick in people reporting that they are Pacific Islander when they are actually Filipino...

I am from the Fijian Islands, but I didn't expect to have any URM status.
