    I know these are a little annoying, but I could really use some input.

    I'm a Canadian applicant ~3.75 GPA/ 31Q
    Average to above average ECs I think

    The schools I have on my list right now are:

    AECOM
    Boston U
    George Washington
    Georgetown
    Jefferson
    NYMC
    Michigan State
    MCW
    Mayo (reach, but no secondary :thumbup:...why not)
    Rosalind Franklin
    SLU
    Virginia Commonwealth
    Wayne State

    I'd love to know if there are any I should add and if I'm on the right track with these.

    p.s. I submitted AMCAS middle of July, will that screw up my chances?
    Thanks all!

    I mean...it's hard to say what your chances are, but in my opinion, I think it's going to be difficult for you to get into a school based off of the fact that you're an international applicant. If you lived in the US your chances would be great given your stats, but seeing as how the schools that do accept international applicants have x < 10 matriculants every year, you normally have to have an exceptional application.

    Hopefully a successful Canadian applicant could give you some more advice though.

    I'd say your best bet at a NY school is SUNY upstate (NYMC only had 3 matriculants for the 2009-2010 app cycle so your chances aren't very good). Other schools that accept international applicants that you might want to look further into:

    SUNY Upstate
    Penn State
    University of Texas - Galveston (unfortunately you'd need to fill out TMDSAS though)
    University of Texas - Dallas (same as above)

    Your timing is fine, especially if all Secondaries are in by September 1.
