You are competitive for any DO school and should receive several interviews. For MD remove Brody, SC and Florida as these schools accept very few non residents with your MCAT score. MD schools you could add include:
Quinnipiac
Oakland Beaumont
Western Michigan
Creighton
New York Medical

Do you think I have any shot at the MD schools I posted? other than the ones you said to omit?
Thanks!!
 
@Goro What do you think, as far as adding or removing? What are my chances according to you? I could use second opinions. I KNOW I'm not supposed to include you in the name, my advisor is pressuring me to email her by the end of wed. so she can compile letters according to the schools.
Thanks in advance!!
 
I recommend:
Quinnipiac

Oakland U Beaumont

WVU

EVMS

Rosy Franklin

MCW

Creighton

Loma Linda (but read their list of don'ts)

Albany

Netter

Your state school(s).

How do adcoms view volunteering as an EMT especially with an extensive shadowing and volunteering background?
Thanks!
 
Pesonally, I equate EMT-B as close to being a taxi driver....but it's still contact.
Also, do you believe DO's are looked down upon in medicine in your experience. In other words, would it close doors if I want to do Emergency Med
