I'm a non-traditional student, I did well in my undergrad (business degree) studies, and ended up with a 3.98 GPA. I did some DIY postbacc classes and just ended up with a 3.58 GPA (I was battling an illness for the first couple of semesters). According to AMCAS, my sGPA is 3.63 and my cGPA is 3.86. I have two MCAT score a 495 last year and 509 this year. Do I have a chance with stats like this? please help

Dude, that is not bad at all. What are you complaining about? Worst case, you do an SMP or at least a semester's worth of work and apply DO.

Who told you 3.58 is low?

Yeah, I think you have a solid chance of getting in DO, and maybe MD depending on where you live, ECs, and background. I would've honestly loved to have your stats.

You are pretty late for MD applications this cycle, but DO is still on the table.

Stats look good! take a couple lighter science classes to show a trend while you wait for next cycle. Maybe work on ECs like shadowing or volunteer work.

As long as you have good EC's and apply broadly I would say you have a great chance to get in low to mid-tier MD schools next application cycle if you apply early when it opens. If you absolutely want to get into medical school this cycle, DO may be your best bet but hey, why not apply to a few MD schools anyway if your AMCAS is already verified?
