    Greetings All,

    Though I have reviewed the posts of this forum for about a year now, this is my first post. Unfortunately, it's a nervous one! :( .

    I have put in a number of applications to both MD and DO schools, though I very much prefer the osteopathic medical philosophy. I'm just wondering what my chances are with the following stats:

    -3.3 cumulative GPA/3.0 Science GPA (biochemistry/molecular biology major combo at a top tier liberal arts school
    -26 MCAT (10V, 9PS, 7BS)
    -EMT-B for 4 years
    -ER/radiological assistant & transporter
    -200+ various volunteer hours in my community/at school
    -Drug development and research at Walter Reed Army Inst. Research
    -Near fluency in German
    -Commissioned as an Army Medical Corps officer in May
    My two main desires for DO schools are PCOM and UMDNJ-SOM (I am a NJ resident).

    Except for the military medical school, PCOM provides the most doctors to the armed forces.
