Hello, I have recently switched from pre-dental to pre-med and I think being a physician is the right choice for me. Therefore i was wondering, what kinda of score I need on the mcats to get into the DO school. My overall gpa is 3.42 and my science gpa is 3.23. I have good LORs with plenty of volunteering experience overseas and also over 100 shadowing hours (cardiologist). I work full time at a psychiatric clinic for the past 6 months and have gained plenty of experience. Now I only need to do well on my MCATs. I have a bachelors degree in Health Sciences. What do you guys think i need more and what score to land a spot in DO school.

it seems like most people on SDN keep saying that 27+ is enough for decent DO's. with your GPA i would aim for ~30 to be on the safe side. I am sure you know the higher score you get the better your chances for better med schools. so give it your best, aim for above 30 so you'll end up somewhere in the 27-30 range!
