Hi,
I'm a URM? (Hispanic) reapplicant. Florida resident.

Stats:
B.A. Public Health GPA: 3.32 (upward trend)
MHS Biochemistry GPA: 3.35 (started off not great in the year as I developed carpal tunnel and tendinitis)
MCAT (1): 497
MCAT (2): 499

Shadowing:
80 hours

Community service:
100 - service club
Translator at an STD clinic- 60 hours


Extracurriculars:
Public health research assistant: 200 hours
Cheerleading: 100 hours
Medical research: 60 hours
Dance team: 4 years

Jobs:
Clinical research coordinator (1 year)
Public health research assistant (3 years)
Office assistance (1 year)

I know my MCAT scores both times we're not great at all. I was either working full time, or part-time while also attending school. I realized I'm just one of those that isn't capable of doing it all at once so I have been studying and focused solely on retaking it again in June. I plan on taking an EMT course (if possible considering the COVID-19) during this upcoming year regardless if I reapply or not. I would appreciate any advice, from a school list (MD or DO) to any options I should consider.

I suggest these DO schools with your stats:
ACOM
ARCOM
NYIT-AR
UIWSOM
ICOM
BCOM
CHSU-COM
WCU-COM
LMU-DCOM
UP-KYCOM
WVSOM
LECOM (all schools)
PCOM Georgia and South Georgia
LUCOM
ATSU-SOMA
TUNCOM
Most of these schools have MCAT medians in the 498 to 502 range.
Apply in June and submit all your secondaries by July.

Looking back I probably should not have applied then since working full time I did not schedule a time to look through DO schools and apply so they were all MD and not many since most of the money I made went towards my rent.

Why would Cubans not be considered URM? They are Hispanic.
It’s been awhile but it’s actually UIM-Underrepresented in Medicine.This usually includes Aa, Mexican, Puerto Rican , Native American and some Asians. It’s somewhat up to schools to decide based on their specific service communities. That’s why I said OP would have to check with individual schools.
