After shadowing DO's and visiting DO schools, I am 100% sure that I will apply to Osteopathic Medical Schools.

Here are my basic stats:
cGPA 3.45
sGPA: 3.19
MCAT: 28Q

I have a slight downward trend with my grades that I am worried about. It's not too drastic, but it is noticeable. Pretty standard shadowing and volunteer work. I work full-time as a means to pay my way through undergrad, though.

Any advice?
Thanks!

Great chance even with a lower than average sGPA. If the downward trend happened in your last semester with no failing grades, it can be easily explained. Dont worry too much. Rock your interviews and you good to go.

Maybe you could list your last two year's GPAs and explain what you mean by "slight." In what classes did you earn low science grades this year? What will your grades be this term?
