Hi, currently finalizing my DO school list and wanted a second opinion.

- c/sGPA: 3.4 (graduated)--I bombed my freshman year and had an upward trend after
- No MCAT score yet (taking it July 18th)
- ORM Michigan resident
- Extracurriculars: ~650hrs volunteer (hospital, tutoring, etc), ~1,000 research (no pubs and was extremely basic/boring research--just being realistic), ~200 shadowing hours over three physicians but primarily one which wrote me a letter of rec, served on a club's executive board for 2 years, went on a Global Brigade trip, in other clubs but not really involved
- LOR (4): DO, pre-med advisor, science professor, & research coordinator

I'm not super familiar with a lot of schools reputations besides MSUCOM other than what is on their website. List below of what I'm thinking so far, please let me know thoughts on what I should remove/add. Thank you!
