A little bit about me first: Major: Biology w/ honors (specialization in microbes and immunity) / Econ minor at Stanford GPA: 3.72 MCAT 39S (13PS, 12VR, 14 BS) Extracurriculars: Three years of pretty intensive research in cellular immunology, but no publications as of yet, 1 summer of research in molecular biology, 2 quarters of shadowing a Radiation oncologist (and loving it), T.A.ing a biology lab science course, and 2 summers working part time in an Allergy/immunology clinic mixing antigens for shots. I also played on the lacrosse team for all 4 years and sing in an a cappella gorup. I'm a california resident, and it would be a dream come true to go to UCSF, UCSD, UCLA, or Stanford (in that order), though I'm also applying to Davis and Irvine. I was also planning on applying to several top tier schools outside California, namely Harvard, Penn, Duke, WashU, Mayo, J-H, and Columbia. I wanted to ask if people think that my stats and activities will give me a shot (and if so, how good) at these top schools, and was wondering what would be some good mid or lower tier schools to apply to make sure i get an acceptance. Thanks in advance!
