Hi, after scouring sdn looking at posts with stats similar-ish to mine this is the list of Med schools I curated. Are there any schools I should add or take off? The bolded schools are my big reach schools

I also wanted to note that I graduated a semester early (applying this cycle) I have only shadowed for around 20 hours because I was planning on shadowing after I graduated early, but now I am not able to because of the pandemic.

Race: Asian (Female)

Undergraduate Institution: Top 10 Private undergraduate school

Major: B.S. Molecular Biology

cGPA: 3.58

sGPA: 3.58

MCAT: 512 (128/127/129/128)

took it March 14th and I was debating on retaking it but decided not to because not knowing when I would've even been able to take the test was stressing me out

Why Howard University SOM? Mostly they will accept underrepresented/socioeconomically disadvantaged applicants, especially from African-American communities to serve those communities.

I think Rush applicants in general have much more clinical exposure than your description.

Challenging to get into California schools you list IMO. Check all the OOS stats for other public schools on your list.

List looks good mostly mid tier schools. Like most students applying everyone has a weak and strong spot. Your gpa on lower side but in range and mcat slightly above range . Full time athletics looks good and shows character commitment since a real time suck which may excuse lower gpa . Rest of ec generic but good enough. Only downside is mcat 512 not bad but average Asian accepted applicants with no sweat acceptance I heard is 513. But overall you in a good place and a competitive chance
