MCAT:
499 (47th%) (CP: 123, CARS: 125, BIO: 125, PS: 126) (second time taking it, 5 point increase)

Additional ECs:

-volunteer fireman
-Tons of research experience (full time job, medically relevant, plus publications)
-over 800+ hours of clinical exposure/volunteer experience (shadowing, unpaid volunteer internships, etc).
-DO letter/shadow experience
-Eagle Scout
-Phlebotomist
-Current job is working at Walter Reed as a research associate for the Army/DOD (i'm a civilian, but really want to do HPSP)
Ok so, I just got my MCAT back and while I did improve, I didnt get what I really wanted. MD schools are obviously out of the question, but what about DO? I already sent in my app and released my scores. I am worried about that CP section big time.......

Newest DO schools, LECOM, Western? Maybe.
Your MCAT score history puts you in a risk zone for failing out of med school , and/or failing Boards.
