    Hi, I currently am a student at the University of Michigan. I am a biology major with an overall and science GPA of 3.4, and a MCAT of 30 (V-11, P-10, B-9, W-P), with good activities and volunteer experience. My question is, outside of the 3 school instate, where should I apply? I'd really appreciate some responses, thanks.

    There are a number of great schools in Chicago that may like the fact that you're from Michigan - Loyola (absolutely beautiful school!), Rush, Northwestern, U of Illinois at Chicago. Also Ohio State is a great school and they have a high out-of-state acceptance rate (like 20% of their class) - I was an Illinois resident when I applied and that was my first acceptance. Hope this helps!

    Apply wherever you would really like to go to medical school. Don't limit yourself. If you start limiting yourself NOW, before you even get into medical school, then imagine the trouble you will have when the time actually comes for you to prove will lack the confidence.
    Anyone can get in anywhere....I have heard some crazy stories. Push hard, make yourself the best candidate, and good luck.
