Hi, anyone applying to the MedStart program at WSU this year? What are your stats? I really want to get in but I'm REALLY nervous! Do you think that they really base their first cut on just academics? (Such as low ACT or GPA, even though they meet minimum req's)?
Why would you go bump up every MedStart thread? This one is more than enough to get attention to the program.
I am applying and I would assume that the first cut is based upon academic record and whether you have a decent amount of med ECs, ECs, etc. I think at the interview stage the committee will start to look more at personality and subjective factors.
hahah well I started posted on the thread from last year.
is anyone else really nervous?
I am. The deadline is coming up and I am still waiting on one of my letters.
Good luck to everyone!
are most people applying from around the Detroit area?
I planned on mailing mine in around that time as well but that is not going to happen for me. One of the doctors I volunteer with was suppose to write me a recommendation letter but he did not have time and he is on vacation until the third. I hope he will have some time when he gets back to write it but he is a busy guy so i'll just keep my fingers crossed! Hopefully they will applications if they are at least sent out by Jan. 15th. If worse comes to worse, I will drive my application down there on the 15th. I will investigate it.
Also, are you applying to any other programs at other schools or are you going to wayne for sure?
