Visited TCOM in December and shadowed an awesome student. Looking at only DO schools. Although, TCOM is an outstanding school probably wont be applying there considering I'm out of state and my stats aren't great. I love the DO philosophy and I definitely see myself as a DO. Need your opinions. 1. If MCAT is less than 25, do I have a shot: low gpa, low mcat. DO I need to retake MCAT in August. 2. Anything in my favor with my bio 3. I would need approx 5 (4 credit hr courses) with As to get GPA 3.5. Do I need to go back to school. 4. Any DO schools favor the more nontraditional with low stats. Need to feel the love.
