Hello!

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on a school list as I have to finalize it soon. I had several friends with similar stats who got rejected last cycle, so I'm very anxious about my school list. In general, I'd prefer to stay on the east coast, but of course any school is a good school! Please let me know if I should remove any schools from my list that are too far reaches, and if I should add any other MD or DO schools - thank you!!

cGPA: 3.78, sGPA: 3.64

MCAT: 519

Major: Biology
Minor: Sociology

Residence: Massachusetts

Ethnicity: white

Research: 730 hours, malaria lab; no publications, unfortunately, but several poster presentations at on-campus events

Clinical volunteering: 250 hours, local hospital

Clinical experience: medical scribe, emergency department, 370 hours

Shadowing: 20 hours (cardiology)

Non-clinical Volunteering: only 20 hours at a homeless shelter - COVID-19 struck 2 weeks in; I'm hoping to do much more throughout my gap year once things (hopefully) settle down!

Leadership/Other: Biology club vice president, physiology lecture and lab TA, organic chemistry tutor (~200 hours)
