    Hi there, first time poster. I'm currently a junior at a top NY public school, and I'm wondering about my chances at getting into a DO school.
    3.4 cgpa
    Double major in biology and music
    30 projected mcat based on practice exams
    EMT-B for 3 years and volunteer ambulance crew chief for 2 years (so patient contact)
    50+ volunteering transport in local hospital
    Shadowed oncologists, trauma surgeons, and ER attendings for 50+hours
    LOR from a DO (or two), a regional EMS coordinator, 2 biology professors and a music professor
    In my sophomore year my gpa plummeted. My father was diagnosed with cancer the previous year, and it was taxing on both of my siblings and myself as he is our only parent (mother passed away in 2008).
    What do you guys think my chances are at DO schools? I plan on applying all over the country. And I apologize if there is another post that I should have piggybacked this onto, I didn't notice on that was so specific to my experience.
