Agree with the comment on MDApps, you are a little top-heavy given the GPA, so add more lower tier schools. Also add Irvine and Davis, I don't see them on the list.
maybe the SUNY's? you get instate tuition after 1 year
maybe mount sinai?
No offense, but your stats don't make Irvine and Davis "safeties." In fact they would be reaches given your current GPAs. You may have a tough application year, don't shoot yourself in the foot this early.
Even though you state there are no "safeties" you obviously don't believe it. You have a great MCAT and come from a great school but don't think that NYMC, RF, Temple, etc. are going to gladly forgive your GPA. I can't see you standing much of a chance at Sinai (or Einstein) but if money isn't an issue than there really isn't a limit on the number of schools to apply to.
What are your criteria for choosing a medical school? Location? Research? Curriculum? You haven't given us any information besides your numbers and a list of your activities.
I just used Sinai because I saw you had referred to it in your post. I just think that your BCPM GPA is going to be a red flag at competitive programs, which make up a significant portion of your list.
Sinai's numbers from the 2008-2009 MSAR are cGPA = 3.75, BCPM = 3.68 and MCAT = 35.1
These numbers are almost the same for all the Manhattan schools. Which year MSAR are you looking at?
wait... for real? is this true for everyone? that is good to know
