    Solid Recommendations. Solid EC's. Re-applicant. 28 MCAT (10-9-9), after a 25 retake.

    GPA: 3.35 --> 2.4 --> 3.85 --> 3.78 --> 3.83 --> 3.94 --> 4.0 --> 4.0 (Strong upward trend)

    Applied with a 3.5/3.33. After senior year, should be 3.65/3.42.

    Plan on submitting on day one, broadly, both MD and DO.

    New York resident. Should I spend the time & money applying broadly to MD? Or focus on just DO?

    MDApps:
    1. This should be in the "What are my chances?" board.
    2. How many hours of clinical experience do you have? This is a fairly important factor.
    3. Your MCAT is a bit low. Unless you have some kind of spectacular, uncommon EC (volunteer work in an under-served area abroad or something like that), you may wanna shoot for mid/high-tier DO schols and low-tier MD schools.
