    Hi all,

    I got my MCAT score back and, after searching around and taking some advice here on SDN, made my final school list.

    503 MCAT (27 on old scale)
    3.5 cGPA
    3.3 sGPA (3.6 for DO....... Calc)
    Upward trend.
    Many varied EC's.
    Strong LORs (MD)
    URM (puerto rican born and raised)

    MD
    All four Puerto Rico Schools
    U Miami
    Wake
    Tulane
    Howard
    Meharry
    Morehouse
    U. North Dakota
    Rosalind Franklin
    Rush
    George Washington U
    University of Washington
    Wright
    NY Medical Center
    Marshall University
    Loma Linda

    DO
    ACOM
    Nova
    LECOM-B
    Wm Carey
    ATSU-SOMA
    KCOM
    PCOM-GA

    It's a long list and I'll end up applying to about 15-17 total. Hoping you all can help me narrow it down?

    Edit: I didn't fail Calculus, got a C in both Pre-Calc and Calculus.

    got it. Do christian schools like Loma Linda force their religion on students?

    No one would say that religion is "forced."
    Perhaps you should look at the website and student handbook for a description of expectations.

    Delete Wright State and replace with Albany and maybe Oakland-B and Western MI.
