    I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. You can surely explain this situation at interviews if you would like. I suggest bringing up your GPA to a 3.5 for DO schools. Have you taken the MCAT yet? study hard for that one and make sure you have solid clinical exposure. I recommend applying to DO schools broadly and low-tier MD schools but if you have a high MCAT score then your chances are much higher. Good luck

    He just finished junior year. He would have to spend four more years full time in school and get straight A's in order to hit a 3.5 GPA. Not realistic.

    OP, if you're academically prepared, do an SMP.
