Thank you for your feedback and time! I will try to add more DO schools as wellI count 2 MD schools where you have a detectable chance at an interview (3 if you are an Adventist).
You have very good DO options, though.
Drexel gets >15,000 applications and their 10th percentile is higher than your better score.Thank you for your feedback and time! I will try to add more DO schools as well
I was thinking about adding the following MD schools in addition, do you think I should give them a try?
I wanted some feedback on my final school list, any recommendations would be appreciated!
reapplicant (sent my primary last year without knowing my mcat score which turned out to be a big mistake with a 498 mcat), so im trying not to apply to schools that average mcats
For this cycle,
3.63 cgpa, 3.51 sgpa, 504 mcat-127/124/125/128=(67th percentile=28 on old scale)
tons of research experience (abstracts, presentations, publications, LOR from PI)
MD schools (my mcat falls between their ranges based on MSAR research)
UC schools (reaches)
University of Illnois
thank you! ill add more DO schoolsDelete the schools in red. Add more DO schools. Add UCR IF you're from the Inland Empire. Add back UCD and UCI.
thank you! ill add more DO schools
are there any other MD programs worth applying to?
i thankfully have the finances to apply to more, so I wanted to cast a wide net to have a better chance at somewhere
Too many OOS schools with a 504 MCAT.Thank you!
what do you think of adding these schools?
Cali Northstate (my GPAs are above average here)
Medical University of South Carolina
No to all of the above because you won't have success at PUBLIC OOS programs given that your MCAT is outside of the 10th percentile.what about tulane , usc-greenville, michigan state, downstate or ucf? are there any other MD schools worth applying to?
i dont think we ever had a PM exchange, but I did apply to all of Goro's MD suggestions and wrote quality secondaries so i will see what happens i just wanted to know if there were any other MD schools worth applying to since i thankfully have the funds to add some more schoolsNo to all of the above because you won't have success at PUBLIC OOS programs given that your MCAT is outside of the 10th percentile.
In our PM exchange, I stated that Goro provided you a great list where you might have some success and I stand by that information.
EVMS screens out OOS applicants below 508/509, is there another school i could replace this school with? any advice on the FL schools? (FIU, FAU, USF, UCF, UF)?With a 504 MCAT, I recommend:
Oakland U Beaumont
Rush (note: very service/experience oriented with a 150hr service requirement. Avg student has 800 hours of community service, and >1800 hours of health care exposure.)
Loma Linda (but read their list of don'ts)
The UC's mentioned above
Any DO school. Start with Western and Touro-CA

You keep asking this in hopes that someone will give you a list of schools you are great for, unfortunately you are far below the average of almost all MD schools and you live in a very unfriendly state. People have given you great advice above. The truth of the matter is that you are a much better DO candidate and should be focusing on that route because an MD app is likely to be very unproductive. You have enough of a shot to throw an app out to some of the MD schools listed above but your chances are slim and so you should plan accordingly.any other MD schools within reach?
