    100 hours volunteering in hospital
    150 hours volunteering in clinical research lab
    1 year full time research in lab, putting together a first author publication right now

    Problem areas:
    -low clinical exposure
    -no LOR's from college courses
    -no LOR's from physicians
    -only a few hours of shadowing here and there, maybe 20 hours total?

    Planning on applying to:
    all SUNY's
    PCOM
    NYCOM
    Touro (Harlem)
    UNECOM
    LECOM-Erie
    CCOM
    MSUCOM
    Rowan


    Thinking about applying next cycle because of LOR and shadowing issues.... might spend the next year pumping out more research and shadowing a ton. Thoughts? If I do this and get some good recommendations, what schools do you suggest? Thanks!!

    Somewhere west of St. Louis
    Any DO school. Low sGPA is very problematic for MD schools. Try Albany, NYMC and Quinnipiac.
