I just graduated with a bs in biology. I would like to apply to D.O. schools. I had a 3.47 cumulative GPA and a 3.14 science GPA. I also had a semester of research and about 200 hours of hospital volunteering. Should I raise my science GPA before applying? I have three C+'s on my transcript. If I retake these three classes, I could raise it to a 3.4.

With a good MCAT, you'll be fine for DO. Make that decision after your score comes back. If it's below a 505, I would say raise the GPA.

If MCAT below 505, do some grade replacement. Otherwise, you good to go for DO
