    Undergraduate GPA (From Transcripts): Overall 3.0 (Science/Non-Science) are pretty close (Yes it's low)
    Graduate GPA - Masters in Biology (From Transcript): Overall 3.53

    MCAT scores: waiting on score, but practice exams I was getting ~500 with a confidence interval of plus/minus 5

    A) +200 hours as a research assistant in the Emergency Department, 3 publications in medical journals and numerous poster presentations
    B) +1000 hours of volunteer in the same hospital at various departments.
    C) +1000 hours working as a transfer mentor for STEM majors, also a private tutor
    D) Leadership: Club Treasure and Interciricular Club Representative at Student Government Meetings
    E) Biology Lab TA during Master's program
    F) Manger at a business (Full-Time)

    Any recommendations on MD/DO schools. I am mainly interested in primary care. Preference is CA but I am willing to go anywhere. Thanks all!

    I have a feeling that you're going to be limited to DO schools with your GPA (and your MCAT range), but we'll be able to help you much much more after you get your MCAT score back. Everything until then is speculation.

    Strongly recommend some post-bacc work.

    Also a 500 is still kind of on the low side of things even if you do a post-bacc and ace it and bring your GPA up close to a 3.2. But let's see the MCAT score first when it comes.
