Do I have a chance at any MD schools? Have mostly applied to DO schools but wanted to ask if I should apply to any MD schools with my stats. Have only applied to GT, Tulane, Rosalind Franklin, CMU, and VCU so far.

Strong ECs. Non-trad with a graduate degree from abroad (GPA not included in AMCAS GPA calculation). 4 years work experience. Lots of clinical and non-clinical hours.

Should also mention my sGPA is much higher is because I finished my science prereqs recently but my undergrad degree is from 4 years ago. I guess I would fall under 'reinvention' category.

I think so, what state are you from? If not from MI, CMU was likely a waste.

Thanks @Goro ! Yeah definitely a strong upward GPA trend! Went up every year. Post-bacc being 3.9.

Any point in applying to Darthmouth and/or Pennstate?

In that case, add Dartmouth, Case, BU, Miami, Loyola, Tulane. If you has lots of service to the underserved, add Keck.

I cannot recommend Penn state. Do a search as to why.

Goro's reasons against PSU have been widely debated and discussed for the better part of almost six years now. However, if you actually WANT to go there, apply, OP.

Don't apply schools you'd never want to go to. Chances if you don't apply to a particular school are zero. Check MSAR and school missions. Goro mentioned some schools that reward reinvention (Dartmouth, for example).
