    This is my first post on SDN and thank you for reading and offering any thoughts or suggestions you might have. I am a 30-year old, non-traditional who just finished a year of pre-requisites. After a very low 3's GPA in college I was able to finish this past year with a 4.0 in 32 hours of science classes to raise my GPA (and hopefully show myself as a new student). With that being said I was curious on your thoughts of my chances, I do plan to apply to MD as well as DO even though I know the chances are very slim I want to give it a shot and would love suggestions for both types of schools. I am hoping to stay in the midwest but am not opposed to moving. I also have years of pharma/med sales to go along with about 100 hours of shadowing. Thanks guys!

    Would love some MD suggestions even though I know it's a stretch

    Unfortunately no, doing all my pre-reqs in the last year along with working and some shadowing was all I really had time for
