    thats funny how you dont give anyone the chance to choose "no nova". But anyways...a 23 for the MCAT is only 1 under the average so its not really that bad. I know of people getting into med school with 21's so i do thinkyou have a good chance. You're gpa is a little on the low side but D.O. schools do look past numbers. It looks like you have a lot of good ec's and volunteer work. GOOD LUCK!!

    If you can do well on your interview, you should be okay. Be sure to be able to tell them WHY osteopathic medicine is for you. The only challenge I can see in what you posted is that you kinda bounced around a bit... PT, DC, SM.. now DO? That might raise eyebrows...

    Oh yeah, the MCAT. Your MCAT score is like your bank account - the higher the numbers, the happier you are. Consider taking it again - if not, remember, that people have been accepted with lower scores.

    Good luck!
