Is this a good school list?
Hi, I had no idea where I should post a question like this. Im just a regular black guy at a top 20. My gpa is a 3.4 and my mcat is a 34Q. I have had to overcome quite a bit of adversities my whole life but I dont focus too much on that in my app. I have basic research and volunteering experiences abroad and Ive even organized a few community health fairs. Im wondering if this is a good list of schools or if Im aiming too high or what. Im also an Ohio resident.

Schools with shortened preclinicals where a HUGE plus for me, then location.
OSU - my state school
Should I add any others or take any off? I have FAP so its not terribly expensive.

Without some kind of tie to California, I feel that you might be shooting yourself in the foot by applying to these, FAP or not. I am sure someone else will tell you to throw a bunch of the "bottom of the list" schools as the list does seem top heavy.
You would get a better response in the What are My Chances section.

We have nearly identical stats! I agree with the above poster. if you have the extra money to try for the cali schools then by all means go ahead. i would throw some more mid to lower-tier schools in there though because you want to try and maximize your chances.
