Hi,

I'm thinking my chances are quite poor but thought I would try asking anyways:

MCAT: 509 (127/125/127/130)
cGPA: 3.33
sGPA: 3.82
ECs: volunteer experience in psych research, research administration, university emergency response, doctor's office

My list so far:
CMU
Rosalind
Georgetown
Howard
Meharry
michigan state university college of human medicine
NYMC
NYU (chances are very low, but want to apply anyways just to try)
UCLA David Geffen

How are my chances looking for the above list or any other med schools I do not have listed?

Howard and Meharry are mission based schools. Do you fit the mission?
You have very low chances at UCLA and NYU.
Chicago Med and RFU are the same school...

If you have the MSAR, filter for the 57 schools that consider internationals.
Eliminate the schools that matriculated less than 3.
Eliminate the mission-based schools (HBCU's, LLU).
Identify the remaining schools where the median MCAT is at or below yours (30ish).
Come back with that list for edits.

Oops CMU i meant Central Michigan. Hopefully I removed the mission based schools. NYU is purely for my own interest, because I would love to live in NYC, but I am quite aware that I have basically 0% chance of getting in.

Based on your above suggestions, I now have:

Central Michigan University College of Medicine
University of Utah School of Medicine
George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences
New York Medical College (less likely)
Rosalind
University of Kentucky College of Medicine
State University of New York Upstate Medical University
Georgetown
