Hi all,

I would love and appreciate some help. I applied this cycle to 20 MD schools and 4 DO schools with no luck (0 ii). Here's some info on my app:

GPA: 3.77 sGPA~ 3.57

MCAT: 509 127/128/125/129

State: CA, ORM

Undergrad: State school

Ties to other States/Regions: None

Clinical Experience: 1000 hours scribe

It would be great to get some advice on where I should apply next cycle and areas to improve in the meantime. Thank you :)

You applied to several state public schools that accept very few non residents with a MCAT of 509 and no connection to the state. I suggest applying more broadly to DO schools in the coming cycle and include all these:
WESTERN
TUCOM-CA
TUNCOM
AZCOM
KCU-COM
ATSU-KCOM
DMU-COM
Touro-NY
NYITCOM
MU-COM
ACOM
CUSOM
VCOM (all schools except Monroe)
LECOM (all schools)
WVSOM
WCU-COM
For MD schools I suggest these:
Vermont
Quinnipiac
New York Medical College
Seton Hall
Drexel
Temple
Jefferson
Penn State
George Washington
Georgetown
Eastern Virginia
Virginia Commonwealth
Wake Forest
NOVA MD
TCU-UNT
Creighton
St. Louis
Loyola
Medical College Wisconsin
Oakland Beaumont
Wayne State
California University
Kaiser
UC Davis
UC Irvine
UC Riverside (if you are from that region)
