Hey guys!

I was waiting for my July MCAT (which is a retake of a previous 28) scores to post to finalize my school list. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

cGPA: 3.55
sGPA: 3.40
MCAT: 510, (retake of old 28)

Extracurriculars/Clinical:
ED scribe (1.5 years)
Medical Brigade with board positions (2 years)
Research: Year long Honors Thesis in Pharmacology/Toxicology lab with Poster session, 8 week long summer internship
High school tutoring for low-income students (2+ years)

Current School List:
Creighton
Western Michigan
Albany
Temple
Drexel
University of Arizona (Phoenix and Tucson)
George Washington
Boston University
West Virginia

USC

I haven't finalized the list yet and am going through the MSAR to figure out which I need to keep/remove but this is where I stand currently. Please let me know what ya'll think, thanks!

Pretty good MCAT improvement. You wanna apply to at least 20 schools though. Did you add all your state schools?

Yea, Im shooting for a final list of about 25 schools total after the next couple of days of filtering through. My state (Arizona) has only two MD schools which are the ones I listed. Im looking into DO as well but after the new MCAT, Im hoping that I have a decent shot at an MD. Do you know of any other low-tier MD's that have are friendly for OOS applicants?

Good list.
You don't seem like the right demographic for Howard.
You might as well add SLU.
You are knocking on BU and USC's 10th% MCAT, but as reaches, I guess they are ok.

Thanks for the reply! Howard completely slipped my mind for some reason. I'll probably add a few more mid-tiers and/or reaches and some DO's to finalize my list.
