    Looking to apply to AA school Archived Message

    Hey everyone,
    First off, I want to apologize if this post goes long, sounds redundant, or sounds foolish, but:
    I have always been interested in the medical field, and have recently decided that the AA-C path was right for me.
    Hereís the basics of my background: I have an undergraduate degree in Biology with a 3.2 science gpa, a 3.4 non science, and a 3.3 overall gpa. I also have an 1100 GRE (670Q, 430V, 3.0A). In addition to this, I have about 1000 hours shadowing/volunteer experience in a local hospital. Finally, Iíve been a tutor, and a member of various clubs, as well. I have 4 people I can request LORís from: a neurosurgeon I shadowed, the volunteer coordinator at the hospital I worked at, and two science professors.
    My questions to you all:
    Would it be too late in the cycle (ie. Put me at a disadvantage) to apply to NOVA this year?
    How many applications does NOVA receive each year, and how many seats are available?
    Based on my above background, would you consider me a strong candidate for AA school?
    I am also thinking of waiting to apply to South and Emory until next cycle, due to their requirements for second time applicants.
    Just let me know what you all think, honestly.
