    I am currently a first year student in podiatry school, thinking about applying to DO schools if I have a chance at an acceptance. Thanks for your advice and guidance!

    cGPA- 3.67
    sGPA- 3.49
    MCAT- 499

    Texas resident with committee letter, MD letter (primary care), and PI letter. My last three semesters were 3.8, 4.0, 4.0 in upper level science courses. I have the regular ECs with clinical/non clinical volunteering, a few leadership positions, and a heavy amount of research, but no pubs. If you think I have a shot, I would appreciate advise on my school list as well.

    List:
    TCOM
    VCOM
    UIWSOM
    ACOM
    ARCOM
    LECOM
    OSUCOM (strong ties to the state)
    WVSOM
    WCUSOM
    BCOM
    CUSOM

      I would re-take the MCAT. If you score above a 505, I would expect to see multiple interviews. In fact, I know a couple people at my school from Texas with similar stats. PM me and Ill tell you.

          Chances are okay. GPA is pretty good. MCAT sucks but its not toxic for DO, especially with that GPA.

          Strong ties to a state with a state school will help immensely.

          Unless money is no object, skip Touro NY/CA, AZCOM, CCOM, RVU-Colorado, any state schools that aren't your own, and any schools with strong regional bias (PNW and NYIT-NY).

          But honestly, with that GPA, you should just retake the damn mcat and shoot for MD.
