Your stats are better than mine and I have multiple II. What are your EC’s? Maybe you are lacking in that department?

You could get an II tomorrow, or next March.

But you should be working on Plan B. It's not too late for TCOM or UIW.

Better ECs than me! I just have 1500+ clinical paid hrs since I’m a scribe. Nothing much else.

Yup! Already applied to DOs! I have a gap semester and I am going to be researching full time (hopefully paid), still in the middle of choosing a lab and will also be TAing for a biology upper level!

Also currently preparing for the next cycle since i know nov is kinda late
