    Medical Student (Accepted)
    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!!

    Any DO school. Low sGPA is very problematic for MD schools. Try Albany, NYMC and Quinnipiac.
