Hi SDN community,

I expect to have my primary verified by the end of August, and have all my secondaries turned in no later than 1-2 days after receiving them. I'm an Ohio resident.

Stats
  • Graduated BS Biology Major with a 4.0 from a respected liberal arts school
  • 514 MCAT
  • 4 years NCAA sport
  • 103 hrs shadowing (5 diff. areas)
  • diverse volunteer experience (hospital, special olympics, other)
  • Leadership (VP of senior honor society)
  • Research (involved in both faculty and individual research - but never published)
I am taking a gap year, and working full time as a medical scribe. I'm also volunteering with a local high school sports team.

Schools
Ohio State, Case Western, Cincinnati, Wright State, Toledo, Thomas Jefferson, Temple, Drexel, Pitt, Georgetown, George Washington, U. of Maryland, USU, Rutgers, Brown, Dartmouth, NYMC, Tufts, Quinnipiac, Wake Forest, Duke, UNC, Rosalind Franklin, Mayo, UCLA, and USC.

Any suggestions to my school list? What are my chances?

I agree you have a healthy list as is. If you would like to be more safe u can consider applying to schools in the 512 mcat range such as Penn State, saint louis, indiana...

Hoe long did you guys have to wait before receiving any interview invites? I've got the majority of the secondaries submitted.

Hey sorry for the late response. I sent most of my secondaries in around August 5th and haven't gotten any interviews but 2 rejections. My friend who got a 519 sent in his secondaries anywhere from easy July (8-12th) to the first couple days of August. The ones that were submitted easy July he heard back from but the ones in later July/ early August he has not. So I am thinking it isn't like u always hear back a given amount of time about a month later but rather they send out offers in waves.

I got my first invite - 18 days after I submitted my secondary. Haven't heard back from any of the other 20+ schools.
