  9. No non-clinical volunteering, I know it's bad but I have a child and work constantly.

Just wanting to know my chances. I feel okay about my mcat and gpa but my extracurriculars are lacking a little.

I'm mainly applying to Ohio schools:
Ohio State (probably a reach)
Cincy
Wright State
Toledo
Ohio University
Marion
Penn State
Michigan State
Louisville
And a few other mid tier schools

You are a strong candidate for your Ohio schools and Ohio State is not a reach for you with your stats.

You have a very good chance at your state schools. Apply to all of them and focus mostly just on OOS schools you'd strongly consider turning down for your state school tuition. If that means only mostly reaches that's fine.
There's no need for DO schools or OOS ones like Penn St. I would target higher stat OOS MD schools with an MCAT median around yours(35)
