    B.S. Chemistry (unofficial minor in Biochemistry but they no longer offer the minor degree)
    GPA 2.98
    Pcat 64

    Applied: University of Oklahoma(home), Wayne State, Midwestern, Michigan, U. of Mass. at Worcester.
    Rejected: Wayne, Midwestern, U. of Mass. (Worcester)
    Possibility: Michigan (Was already accepted)
    Accepted: University of Oklahoma (OKC)

    I know I should have apply more than that as an average acceptance rate is 10%-15% per applicant. But I got accepted at my home state so it will be a little easier. My original strategy was to apply to 10-20 schools (only 2-3 grands in fees), which undoubtedly will give me a 10% or 1-2 acceptance offers. Did you know difference school/state have different requirements? So I took some community college courses to satisfied that but I ran out of time to apply to that many schools. But I got lucky as I also have applied to the same university for many years.
