Hello!

My stats aren't too good:
3.25 cGPA, 3.25 sGPA (somehow pulled a 3.8 my senior year -_-),
28 and 503 MCAT
I know I'm not stellar -- I believe the only thing giving me a fighting chance are my EC's:
~3000 hrs of research
~2000 hrs as a CNA
>100 hours clinical volunteering, <50 hours volunteering in undergrad clubs (ie. teaching English to foreign students)
~100 hours shadowing (MD and DO)

If it matters, my PS and secondaries tend to address my weak undergrad and my strong senior year, hoping that my boost of maturity/focus on my grades will follow me into the next level.

I submitted all my secondaries to ~15 DO schools everywhere and will add more once the rejection letters start rolling in. =)

Thanks!

To this list I'd add both LECOMs. I can't recommend LUCOM.
