    thanks for the support, good luck! But i really dont want to be a reapplicant if I dont get in. Basically I only want to apply once. The process is so tedious! Plus I cant stand the MCAT lol i realize that a 26 is not the end of the world, but is the 7 in verbal going to kill me?

    Average stats for 2010 entering DO students were 3.47/26.49. I doubt the VS will hold you back.
