I have a 3.57 gpa and I am writing my MCAT this summer. I've had 2 years of research and currently doing another research position. I've volunteered at a hospital for 2 years. What chances do I have for a DO school? Is it especially hard because I am a Canadian student? If there is a forum link anyone can help me with that would be great!

Thank you!

the "hard" thing is..most schools DO/MD are not canadian friendly...

so the pot already from the start gets cut in half

some say they are intl friendly..but they are not...case in point PCOM and UNE...

apple early!! get ur stuff together fast..ref letter and letter of intent etc..contact the school and show interest...but with the mcat above 27-28 ull get an ok

Can friendly:
azcom, lmu, touro-ny, ccom, msu (can initiative), nova, kcumb, western

..i think thats the list..
