So I was thinking, as I am wont to do from time to time, why not take one of the obsessive thoughts in my head and make a post on SDN with it! Here's what I'm looking for: I'd like people to post the stats of what they believe would be an application package that meets a minimum standard that would allow you to look at it and think to yourself, "Yea, this guy will probably be able to get into a school. I'd be surprised if he didn't get into at least one or two MD programs for sure." I am no expert in this area but I imagine someone coming up with say, something like this: "3.7+ GPA, 28+ on the MCAT, couple of summers doing undergrad. research, some time spent doing some sort of volunteering at a hospital or community based health organization, a few extracurriculars like biology club or student government, decent LORs from profs. who like you... etc etc" I know there's no magic formula for getting accepted to medical school, I'm just looking for your thoughts along these lines. By the way, this is NOT a "what are my chances thread" these are not my stats, I made them up, I am not starting pre-med until spring 2009. Huzzah!
