What are you going to say when asked how you know you are suited for a life of caring for the sick and suffering? “That you just know”? Imagine how that will go over!Thanks for the advice. So there would not be even a slim chance given the rest of my work right? I figured it was almost impossible, but I really wanted to give it a shot at least
This is bad advice. really bad advice.@Goro @Faha
If finances of application cost are not an issue, would it hurt for OP to apply this year ?
OP Has good GPA/MCAT which places at 80% acceptance chances on the AAMC grid, I understand that most of the matriculants in that range probably have more clinical exposure than OP and his chances are lower. Even if he has a low chance of getting in, would it not make sense to apply at least to in state schools and maybe some of the lower tier medical schools, instead of taking a gap year trying to improve his application. With the COVID situation, would there be some leniency from medical schools regarding the clinical exposure for this years applicants?
