    There is some great basic science neuro research at Rowan (formerly UMDNJ SOM), check out Dr Robert Nagele, he developed a test for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's that is very promising and got grants from Michael J Fox Foundation. Good luck, any questions about Rowan PM - I just graduated last week.

    If you do not have any retakes apply only MD.

    ^ agreed. You are solid for any DO school as well as low and mid-tier MD.

    I removed TCOM and UNECOM because they have regional preferences. You'll get a solid education at any of the schools on your list, so based upon nearby attractions, I would suggest

    AT Still (Arizona)
    AZCOM (Arizona)
    Western (California)
    Touro (California)
    Western (Oregon)
    Rocky Vista (Colorado)
    Touro (NY)
    MUCOM (IN)
    Nova Southeastern (Florida)
    Chicago (Illinois)
    Philadelphia (Pennsylvania)



    No

    I feel like a lot of my extracurriculars are a bit short in duration. Do you guys think that this will significantly hurt my application?

    "Regional Preferences" tend to disappear when you show up with a 33 MCAT.
