    I have my app in and frantically sending in secondaries as they come in. A little encouragement or realism appreciated.

    sGPA 3.6
    cGPA 3.33 Terrible first year in school nearly crippled my academic progress but I was able to show an upward trend in my last years with an average of 3.8 in my junior and senior years.

    MCAT 38Q
    V-11
    B-14
    P-13

    Over 30 hrs shadowing.
    Nearly 1000 hours of work in a low income community clinic.
    Good research and leadership opportunities.

    My List of Schools (some are reaches but you have to shoot for the moon or whatever)

    Boston University
    Creighton
    Dartmouth
    George Washington
    Georgetown
    Jefferson
    Loma Linda
    Mount Sinai
    Oregon Health and Sciences
    Penn State
    Rosalind Franklin
    Stanford
    Ohio State
    University of Vermont
    Tufts
    Pittsburgh
    Rochester
    University of Utah
    University of Washington
    Vanderbilt

    23 in all. I have also submitted a DO app to four DO schools.

    Thanks for your input.

    EDIT: I am a resident of Utah. Otherwise the University of Utah would be a hard reach as they don't take many out of staters.

    Nice mcat score and grade trend...The sGPA still isn't all that bad, just that damn cGPA, huh :mad:.

    I think you'll def find yourself an acceptance from that list -- and of course there's some long reaches like you said due to that cGPA. Assuming that you're using the DO schools as a safety net, I don't thing you will need them.

    It would be a bit more helpful if you would tell us your state of residence...

    G'luck
