I'm new to this DO thread. My story: I just graduated with a 3.53 GPA. I can't figure out my science GPA. I have volunteered at several hospitals but have not shadowed. I will be volunteering at a shelter for women and children. I am also studying for the MCAT for the second time; the first time I took it I had a 25. I also have to go back to school to do my organic chem lab in the summer because most med school require it and I want broaden my chances. My question is: if I take this last course (ends in August) is there still a chance that my application will be sent early enough for the 2008 matriculation? I am also finishing my application and all I need to send are my transcripts and my personal statement. Do I need to turn in all my transcripts at the same time, including the course I'm taking this summer? I don't want to turn everything in late because of just one course. Another question: with my stats that I mentioned earlier is there a good chance in being accepted to several DO schools? Thanks.
