Thanks for taking the time to read and help me!

I am a senior in college with a GPA and sGPA of 3.2 and an MCAT of 512. I have leadership/ mentoring activities for a year, team building activities, 200+ hours of shadowing, some research experience and an upward trend in GPA.

I was contemplating either going to a DO school with my stats or try for an SMP into an MD school pathway. I want to go to a DO school because it saves time and money (no SMP) but I have heard that its hard for DO's to get competitive residencies and thus mostly are in primary care. However, I also want to go to an MD school because it is the traditional pathway and will provide broader avenues for specialties.

What would you suggest?

Thanks a lot in advance!
