A year or two ago I made a post and this is a follow up. I have decent EC's (clinical, research, etc.), 3.5 gpa with an upward trend, but got a 503 MCAT (127/124/127/125). I was wondering what my chances were at DO schools. I am applying to my state MD school but doubt I have a shot anywhere else. I don't know if I should retake the MCAT because all my practice scores were in the 508 range so feel terrible for not performing as well :(

Programs I am thinking of:
KCOM (kirksville)
PCOM
KCU-COM
CCOM
LECOM
Campbell
DMUCOM
RVUCOM

Any advice and additions to the list would be greatly appreciated!

What state school are you applying to? What are your EC's ? Are your URM?

KU, not a URM. My ECs include:
- 2 years of research, presentations and conferences attended as well as possible publication
- clinical volunteering ~ 200 hours
- tutoring for a semester
- secretary/cofounder of a school club
- 80 hours of shadowing 3 different docs (hospitalitist, family physician, oncologist) + DO LOR
- working for the family business since a very young age
- other random non clinical volunteering stuff I have done throughout college ~ 150 hours

NYIT-Arkansas (new school)
ARCOM (new school)
ATSU-SOMA

Cool beans, will do! Also one last question, are these stats competitive enough for acceptance?
