I just wanted to get some feedback on my application. This is my first year applying. I am a KS resident. I am doing EDP for University of Kansas
-non traditional student
-3.6 gpa 3.4 s gpa
-508 MCAT( 129, 124, 127, 128)
-played d1 collegiate baseball
-drafted 3x by MLB (Tampa Bay Rays, KC Royals, and Milwaukee Brewers)
-played professionally for 3 years
- 600 hour internship in hospital (physician shadowing (PCP, radiologist, orthopedic, sports medicine)
-current medical assistant in clinic(orthopedics, pain management, general surgery, neurology) 1000+ hours
-observed 50-60 hours of surgery (TKA, THA, TSA, ACL repair, etc)
-trip to foreign country and participated in humanitarian efforts

Thank you for the response Faha. Do you think the admission committee will value athletics as EC and understand the time commitment necessary? Just worried because athletics made if very difficult to do much else while in school. Thanks for your advice!
