WAMC 509 (125/129/125/130), sGPA 3.46, cGPA 3.60

MCAT score is from 2017, trying to decide if I should retake for this upcoming cycle.
I have a date to re-take but am not confident I'll be able to exceed or meet the previous score, which is lopsided toward CARS/social sciences.
**Is an old test score viewed differently than a new test score? Ex. do I need to show that I'm still familiar with the material 3 years later?

I have similar stats as you with a slightly higher GPA.

I'll list some MD schools that I had on my list. I didn't apply to them all due to financial troubles tho. I also applied to all of the TX schools since I'm a TX resident but I won't list those.

1. Quinnipiac
2. Albany
3. Temple
4. Penn State
5. Medical College of Wisconsin
6. Wright State
7. Drexel
8. NYMC
9. Thomas Jefferson
10. Louisville (30% OOS Matriculants)
11. Toledo (28% OOS Matriculants)
12. Cooper of Rowan U (32% OOS Matriculants)
13. Oakland
14. Wayne State (35% OOS)
15. MSU (I think they favored IS appliants. Possibly 25% OOS matriculants)
16. Rush

I highly advise you apply to many DO schools. Your GPA is a bit low for MD. I only received a few invites from the schools that I applied to listed above.
@Faha made a great DO list for you, so I won't make one.
