    Hey guys I need advice on what DO schools I should target.

    African American
    Cumulative gpa ~3.2
    Science ~3.1
    Did one year of post bac with retakes ~3.8
    Old mcat 23 with 6 in verbal
    New mcat of 500 with 123 in verbal

    Pretty good extracurriculars.

    Any of them, plus the HBCs, and your state MD school.

    What about the schools that require an 8 in each subsection? Don't think I'll have much luck with MD schools since my gpa is 3.0 without retakes.

    Don't underestimate how desirable you are as a candidate as a URM. I think that you can pull some invites, and then it will be on you. Granted, no school will do you any favors if you can't make it through med school.

    Do you have trouble with standardized tests? This is fixable. We're addicted to these, but a weak VR is given the most slack out of all MCAT subsections.

    I think verbal reasoning is the one section really hurting my score.
