-Biomedical Engineering Major ~100 hours as an emergency department volunteer ~50 hours as an Orthotics department volunteer ~50 hours volunteering at a local primary care clinic ~40 hours of clinical shadowing -Spent one month doing an global health volunteer program in Ecuador -Spent 2 years as the financial coordinator (ie treasurer) for my undergraduate student cultural organization ~1.5 years as an undergraduate assistant in a biomedical engineering lab. Made a presentation at an undergraduate research conference. -Completed a capstone biomedical engineering design project for my major. We designed, fabricated, and tested an implantable medical device and presented our results to the clinical translational sciences center. -participated in a university honors program, member of tau beta pi (engineering honors society), and EMT certified.
My undergraduate grades weren\'t that great (i blame the rigorous engineering curriculum in addition to premed), but b/c of my solid mcat scores, I opted to do a special master\'s program. I got a 3.7 in the master\'s program, and I am now doing lab research for my thesis.
I applied really broadly, including a bunch of top tier schools as well as low tier schools, and lots in the middle. We\'ll see how this goes...
