    Ohio is among the very best states to be a pre-med. OH matriculates 36.2% of it's IS applicants (a greater percentage than TX!).
    When it's time to make a list, the MSAR is where one gets the information to make informed decisions.

    You would have a chance at all the Ohio schools (except Case Western). You could add Oakland Beaumont and Western Michigan where your stats would be considered for an interview.

    You don't get a .4 boost in your GPA just because you majored in engineering

    Some accommodation for rigor, perhaps. Nothing like 0.4...
    The MCAT is the real field leveler.

    Invest in MSAR are target schools whose median scores are closest to your own. Your numbers are below avg., but still competitive IF you apply strategically.
