2021-2022 NASHVILLE Application cycle


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I didn't see a post for this year's cycle so I'm super excited to start it. I"m very nervous about applying. Last year I only applied to about 3 schools because I didn't take the GRE. 

My undergrad GPA is very low so I'm stepping out on faith here, but my science gpa, postbacc gpa, and graduate gpa are all at least 3.0. 

Here are my hours: (I tried to overcompensate to offset the low GPA)

PCE: 8,000+ hrs as a Clinical research coordinator and PT aide

Research: 1,720 hrs

Extracurricular: 1,327 hrs 

Volunteer: 686 hrs (including Guatemala medical mission trip)

Shadowing: 100 hrs (dermatology, oncology, hematology, orthopedics, emergency medicine, internal medicine, thoracic surgery, and otolaryngology)

Leadership: 41 hrs

Teaching: 6 hrs

Good luck to everyone!!!!!!!!

Yeah no clue why and kinda mad they haven’t told anyone about this, because originally they said September.

not terribly mad about it my stats are low so this means people who get in other places first wont end up interviewing so maybe ill have a better shot but like January is a long ass time. Did they have an issue with accreditation or something

That is a great point, and good positive way to look at it! Yeah just the waiting sucks! And I have no idea, they didn’t say but I believe an accreditation meeting or something was supposed to happen in September.. so maybe?
