mcat score breakdown: 125, 122 126 127

-research experience
-teaching experience
-DO letter, MD letter/math professor letter/possibly weak science letters from professors in classes with over 250 students (gen chem and biochem)
-statistics major so took lots of math and stats classes which unfortunately haven't contributed to science gpa for DO
-graduated from a great research school in the midwest


Hi yall,
So, here it goes. I have applied to all the DO schools. I have pretty good EC's and personal statement seems solid. I have submitted 23 secondaries so far and have 9 more to go. I sent in the majority of my secondaries early August and haven't heard back from anywhere aside from pre secondary rejection screens from Touro CA, CUSOM, and LUCOM. My plan so far is to go full force in CARS and the MCAT again if I indeed don't hear back from anywhere by January.

Question is, do you think I have a chance at receiving any love from any schools. Haven't heard anything yet so I'm feeling a little discouraged. Also, does it sound like a feasible plan to go full force on MCAT in January for the next cycle? Thanks!

You should receive some love.... not surprised you got pre-secondary rejected from those schools -- they are known to have more stringent cut off. That 122 is low, but the 500 in itself along with a decent GPA will give you a change at some of the newer schools (since you applied to EVERY DO school I would be shocked if you did not get some II)
