Hi all, I submitted all my secondaries by mid-August and have not heard back regarding interview invites. I'm unsure if I was too high reaching in my school list, and given that this cycle is so different, perhaps it would be beneficial for me to add more schools (even this "late" in the cycle).

For reference, 3.98/3.93 (cGPA/sGPA) and 516 MCAT (127/131/129/129). I would say my ECs are pretty strong, centering mostly around public health, community organizing/advocacy, and some clinical experience in women's health and sexual/gender minority health. A lot of research experience, but it's kind of everywhere and I have no publications (I jumped around a lot of labs until I realized I liked cancer virology, stuck with that lab for 2 years). Most of my clinical experience is in integrative oncology, where I was a doctor's intern/assistant.

My school list is as follows:
*Baylor
*Boston University (rejected :-()
*Case Western
*Columbia
*Emory
*George Washington
*Harvard
*Oregon Health & Science University (In-state, top choice)
*Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University
*Stanford
*Tufts
*Tulane
*University of Cincinnati
*University of Colorado (working here during my gap year)
*University of Miami
*University of Pittsburgh (undergrad in Pittsburgh,PA)
*University of Rochester
*University of Wisconsin
*Weill Cornell

Thank you all for your input on if/what schools I should add. Even writing this out was therapeutic for me :).

Stanford
Case
Duke
Sinai
U VA
Baylor
UCSF
Pitt
USC/Keck
