I havent taken the mcat; plan to take it in May. I'm shooting high and hope i can get at least a 30. But if i dont, do i have any shot at MD schools at all?? I have good ECs and a good amount of shadowing and clinical experience. I am CPR certified, EMT certified, and currently work as a lab technician. I have over 70 hours of shadowing and can get 2 excellent LORS from the doctors i have shadowed, one of whom is D.O. I will apply DO schools as well. What are my chances there?

I think you have a shot at allopathic schools assuming your MCAT score is 33+. Did you already graduate? For your LOR's, you'll need 2 science LOR's from professors in bio, physic, chem, or math classes who've graded you and can discuss your qualities as a student. You probably already knew this but I'm just making sure.

For DO schools, a 25 mcat will give you a decent chance; however, a 28+ mcat will make you competitive.
