Hi guys, I did a really stupid move, but I wanted to wait on submitting my application until my MCAT came out and it just did.

I have my personal statement and grades filled out on this year's application and probably need a week to submit.

So would I be competitive this cycle if I were to submit the primary next week? I have to say, it wouldn't kill me if I waited another year, but if I can apply this cycle, I will. If anyone has any recommendations on schools, I would also really appreciate it.
Thank you so much!

How are the other parts of your application? EC s? Shadowing? Clinical work?

Waiting next cycle leaves some room for more improvement. You can only become more competitive with time

Your fine, with the post bac and MCAT get that app in as soon as you can. It is just getting to the normal range to apply for DO. You should get multiple interviews

I agree as well. You should definitely submit your app asap. By the way, nice post-bac gpa and MCAT. You should get some love from schools.
