    Currently I have applied to about 15 schools, which are all MD schools. I'm wondering if I should apply to anymore schools as a backup. In addition, should I apply to a couple of DO schools too. Also, is there a chance my M writing score will hurt me through the application process.

    To view my stats click on my link MD applicants profile (http://www.mdapplicants.com/profile.php?id=23419)

    I will appreciate any opinion provided.

    I can't make any specific comments about your school list, but here are some specific thoughts:

    - You seem pretty light on clinical experience (although you seem to have an above average number of shadowing hours)
    - With a 32 / ~4.0, you really don't need to apply to DO schools if you're not enthusiastic about their philosophy.
    - No one cares about your writing score.
