Thank You, I will add those schools! Would it still be a good idea to keep Burrell as a safety though? I know they're a bit newer and their stats aren't all too high yet.Remove Burrell (high attrition). You could add these schools:
Id advise against Sam Houston because you'd have to apply via TMDSAS which is another entire new application for you just for one school. Because SHSU-COM is not subsidized by the state of Texas however, they can accept as many OOSers they want (TMDSAS medical institutions must abide by the 90/10 rule for IS/OOS) but their tuition is significantly higher. In addition, think twice about attending a new DO school particularly as we enter the S1 P/F era and PDs will begin to factor in established programs more.I am an ORM with a gpa around 3.37 cGPA and 3.21 sGPA for AACOMA
My MCAT score is a 510
I was wondering if anyone could help me make a realistic DO school list? I know my GPA is definitely on the lower side due to a couple of C's I got my first 2 years in undergrad but I've had kind of an upward trend since then. My senior year gpa was around a 3.7 and my post bacc is around a 3.5 (first semester was a lot of B's because of a family death but I got all A's in the second semester).
As for EC's I think they're pretty cookie-cutter in terms of shadowing/volunteering/research. I have a decent amount of clinical hours (400+), probably around 100-150 of community service, and over 1000 hours of research experience but no pubs or posters.
Here's the tentative school list I've made so far, any thoughts on schools I should add or remove? Thank you for any help you all can provide!
Maybe Sam Houston
