Hey guys. I appreciate any advice or tips you have for me applying to medical school. I am applying in June. I am planning on going to D.O. school and I will apply pretty much only to D.O. schools.

26 on the MCAT (10VR, 9BS, 7PS) I might retake it before it changes, but honestly, I think I did well enough and I don't want to study again.. If I can get in with a 26, I'm gravy.

I go to BYU. sGPA 3.07, GPA 3.38. Over the last 4 semesters though, my science gpa has improved and been closer to a 3.4 ish.

Fluent in Spanish (I'm white) ( did a Service mission to El Salvador)

I don't have research experience, and I probably won't get any since I'm graduating in April.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

You have a shot at most DO schools except for CCOM, AZCOM, the NY and CA Touros, and Western. If you can keep your upward trend going, things will look up for you.

You are in a pretty good position for DO schools. Try to get that sGPA to the 3.2-3.3 range.
