    Hi everyone, thank you in advance for your advice!

    I applied once in the summer of 2018 and received only one interview and waitlist. My stats are as follows:
    sGPA: 3.71
    cGPA: 3.76
    MCAT: 513 (128, 127, 127, 131)

    On my previous application, I was only a few months into my volunteering opportunities - so this time, I have a lot more clinical volunteering hours (about 350 hours). I have 3 years of pretty strong research experience and switched jobs after my last application cycle to more directly work with the population I was researching.

    My current school list:

    Albany Medical College
    Alpert
    Emory
    Drexel
    Georgetown
    George Washington
    University of Vermont
    Tulane
    Uniformed Services
    UC Davis
    University of Arizona
    Wayne State
    Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine
    Medical College of Wisconsin
    New York Medical College
    Oakland University
    Dartmouth
    Tufts
    University of Alabama
    University of Colorado
    University of Missouri – Kansas City
    University of Iowa
    Cooper Medical School
    University at Buffalo
    University of Illinois
    University of Nevada, Las Vegas
    West Virginia University School of Medicine
    Virginia Tech
    Florida International
    Eastern Virginia
    Florida Atlantic
    State University of New York Upstate
    Rosalind Franklin
    Quinnipiac Connecticut
    University of Wisconsin

    Are there any other schools you would recommend applying to or any schools that I should take out?

    Thank you in advance!

      Above is a more realistic list. And considering that you are now a reapplicant, you should have some DO Schools on your list.

      Are you aware of the service component for Uniformed Services University?

        Thank you so much @Goro! I really appreciate the help. If by service component, you mean the seven year commitment to uniformed services after graduation - yes, I am aware, and it is one of my top choices!
