    Senior @ UC Irvine
    CA Resident. Asian.

    GPA: 3.72
    Science GPA: 3.8
    MCAT: 30

    Clinical Volunteering: 240 hrs
    Research: 1 year. No paper

    I don't care where I get accepted.
    I'd like to get accepted to any CA schools but I know that's hard.
    So realistically speaking..preferably ones in NY or UT.

    What are my chance of getting into a med school?

    You need to broaden your scope beyond CA, UT, and NY...but with a broad application, you should do OK...and without state residency or very specific ties to the state or URM status, Utah is not going to work out for you...

    Your numbers are solid, but is that all you have for EC's?

    You need to apply broader as a Cali applicant.

    i agree, apply broader as a CA resident. ive read about students with similar stats getting into a CA school but ive read an equal amount of students with considerably higher stats not even getting a second look in CA.

    Unfortunately my EC is pretty weak..

    What do you suggest to improve this?

    What are my chances for NY schools? Aren't there like 10 meds schools in NY?

    If you look at the sticky at the top of this forum, you'll see the "School Selection" spreadsheet. It links to a grid with the mean stats of acceptees to all US med schools. You can easily compare your numbers to all NY schools, as well as others.
