    I think you're good anywhere you want to go. Have you submitted your application yet?

    stats are good. I would build podiatry specific experiences. That's almost as important. shadow a pod for sure

    They already have for 25 hours.. Which is more than enough. Depending on when you apply (now vs like january.) If you apply in january schools with smaller classes will probably waitlist you since they may be full while larger class schools will take you. However apply soon and you probably have a good chance for admission at all schools.

    I agree. Your GPA will hold you back a little, but your MCAT should be enough to get you to where you want to go if you apply early.

    Also as NikiS says, don't bother wasting your time with more pod stuff - it is unnecessary.
