I've done a bit of lurking here but I am a bit nervous about not being a competitive enough applicant. I still have quite a few classes and the MCAT to take, but I am looking to be as competitive as possible as I'm slightly older than the average applicant ( I will be around 27 when I start medical school if accepted).
- Cum Laude undergrade, BA Psych - 3.64 GPA
- Post-bacc GPA - 3.7
- Currently working at one of the Top Technology Retailers in the country as a sales account manager
- 2 kids
- Volunteer in a NICU family room through Ronald McDonald House Charities
I plan on shadowing my OBGYN this spring, but am wondering what else I can include to be more competitive. I also still have Ochem and Physics to take.
Well, it depends on whether or not a spot opens up in the OCHEM this semester at the college im taking courses at. If it opens up this spring, I might take it in September. If not, I will probably take it next January.
