How I Did It:

Grades and MCAT were average. I was worried applying this cycle, but am ecstatic with how things turned out. I account my acceptance to :

1) Very strong background in research, publications
2) LORS, esp from those affiliated with the school I got into
3) Great Interview
4) Luck

Best of luck to all future applicants!
