    Hello,

    I just got back my MCAT results, and its 507 overall (128,124,129,126). It was a retake from a 25(10,7,8).
    My overall GPA is 3.6, and a 3.3 science GPA.
    So far, I have applied to the following schools:

    Drexel U
    Western U
    KCUMB
    Touro-Nevada

    With my new MCAT score, can someone provide me a list of schools (pref. an MD) that I could apply to?
    I would prefer to stay in CA, but I know that its very unlikely unless I want to go the DO route.

    Thanks!

    You should be competitive for most DO schools but apply broadly to at least 12 schools. For MD you could add these schools:
    Quinnipiac
    New York Medical College
    Albany
    Temple
    Jefferson
    GW
    Oakland Beaumont
    Western Michigan
    Rosalind Franklin
    Loyola
    St. Louis
    Creighton
    California Northstate

    You are fine for DO's but the low science GPA coupled with a low MCAT the first time around and a low CARs the 2nd time around(on top of a 30 while adequate is still below the median at many lower tiers) will make MD admisison tough particularly coming from CA.

    For DOs apply to at least a dozen you'll be competitive. For MDs check out lower tier private schools that have 10th percentile verbal scores in the 7-8 range. It'll be an uphill battle but try and apply to as many lower tiers as you can that you have any chance of being competitive for if you want to maximize your MD chances and see what happens.

    Which specific schools are you referring to when you say low tiered schools?

    Thanks!
