    URM or not, no medical school is doing you any favors by admitting you when the evidence of your GPA and MCAT suggest that you will not survive a medical school curriculum.

    Thanks for the advice. That will help with my GPA for DO schools. What about MD schools?

    You need to do way better on the MCAT. As it stands, you would be wasting your money applying to MD schools with a 22 regardless of anything else on your resume.

Amongst those bad grades I earned a F in Cal twice and a C in Gen Chem 1 on my second try as I was intent on having a reason to leave school and come home.A fter that I earned a couple more C's but re-took all classes and earned an A. Sorry for the long post, So here are my stats:
    MCAT: 28
    UGPA: 3.6 AACOMAS GPA.
    SGPA: 3.51
    URM: Black Male
    Plan to apply to D.O Schools and HBCU's

    Are you fluent in Spanish?
    If so, you have a modest chance at the 3 Puerto Rican schools that accept mainlanders.
    Depending on your next MCAT, you also have a modest chance at the HBCU's, esp. if you are African American.
