    Your undergrad GPA is going to hurt you a bit. With an MCAT score of 30+ you would definitely stand a good chance in DO schools. EC list is in great shape.

    Overall your application seems strong. Just to verify you should ask your questions in the DO forum...

    Good luck! :)

    Get a 30 on your MCAT and you'll be golden. You live in TX, so your chances are much greater for an acceptance if you want to attend a state school. The only thing holding you back is your undergrad GPA, and you have overcome that with your graduate GPA. Especially if you have 20 hours or so. Also, applying as late as you are in the cycle may hold you back a bit. Worst case scenario, wait a year and apply next June. GOOD LUCK!

    One more thing, between now and the time you apply, shadow a couple of doctors (DO if possible...get a LOR) and write a [email protected]$$ personal statement. Make sure that your LOR's are going to be GREAT too.:luck::luck::luck:
