My son has applied to 18 med schools. Was contacted in July to interview in Sept. at a very prestigious school and was wait listed. He has been rejected by 2 ivy's. He's in the 91st percentile for the new MCATS goes to a very prestigious liberal arts school in New England. Has a 3.8 GPA, has been an EMT since age 17 and the Chief of his campus' EMS program for 2 years. He has also shadowed surgeons AND has done 2-3 years of Neuroscience research. He has also attended TedMed and did a poster presentation at the National Conference of Neurosurgery this year. His advisor has told him he thinks he will have choices.....he is not a minority or foreign student. Parents and students - any info you can share with this nervous parent? He's worked so hard and has all the right things and also got his applications in early summer of 2015. What's the word out there?
