    Remove AZCOM, I would be cautious about Liberty unless you're very religious and could follow their rules, Touro CA and NY like very high MCATs so I would remove NY. Maybe keep CA since that is in your home state.

    Thank you @Goro and @wsu11 ! In your opinions, how do my chances look this cycle. I need to make a decision soon on whether to pursue a SMP and a MCAT retake

    I think you'll do fine this cycle! Your ECs are good. An SMP would be a waste of money. Your MCAT is the only weak part of your app but I still think you'll get into at least one of these schools.

    If you don't get in it would be easier and cheaper to retake a couple classes you got Cs in to help the sGPA and/or retake the MCAT later on. I don't think it will come down to this though.

    I wish you the best of luck!
