I am Canadian. What are my chances for top american med schools? Which american schools would you recommend applying to? What would you recommend improving in my application between now and September? I have a 4.0 cGPA, 521 MCAT (127 CARS), many meaningful extracurriculars (although I am worried because I do not have any meaningful research or shadowing). A few of my major ECAs include: -Student trustee of a major Canadian research university -Member of student government -Youngest board member of a national education advocacy organization - National chair of prestigious political training program (involved for 7 years) -250 hours EMT overseas -Teach sports to children with disabilities for many years -Executive of large cultural club on campus -a ton of intramural high school, sports, high school class president... (good stuff in high school) Thanks!!!
Has any Canadian been accepted to an American Ivy league here and willing to talk about their application? Just curious - what do you think separated you from the thousands of other applications/ did you feel you had a good chance when you applied/ have any of you had a sub 3.7 CGPA? Also, on another note. How much do GPA trends make a difference - if I got a 3.1 first year, but a 4.0 in second and third, would this qualify me as competitive or would I still be an average applicant with a 3.7CGPA? Cheers!
