    Apply early, broadly, and to the right schools. Make sure not to apply to schools where you don't meet their MCAT cutoffs.

    Don't apply to the schools that have have MCAT averages.

    If you apply broadly you will get in somewhere.

    I think you have a shot if you apply broadly to "low tier" DO schools and some of the newer schools

    -LMU
    -KYCOM
    -VCOM
    -PCOM-GA
    -PNWU
    - CUSOM
    - MUCOM

    What would be an "early" deadline to submit my finalized application?

    Best chances will be with newest programs, but apply broadly. Skip the Touros, Western and CCOM.

    Strongly recommend you fix your test taking deficits.


    This is a brief summary of my stats which I personally think will look good for an application. I think my EC's will stand out but I am concerned with my MCAT performance. I have taken the test 3 times and the first time I was definitely very ill prepared (19N : 7VR, 6PS, 6BS). Second time (23: 5VR, 9PS, 9BS). Third time (25: 8VR, 7PS, 10BS).

    What do you guys think? Which schools might I have a decent shot and what type of activities may I take part in to improve my overall resume?

    Look forward you hearing from you all, thank you.[/QUOTE]

    I'd skip Rowan and PCOM-PA unless you are in state but even then below avg MCAT. Newer schools and mid- low tier. Good luck!
