Just got back my MCAT from late September second take with 5 point increase to 502 (124 CARS). I am a non trad African American URM with tons of research and clinical experience (over 2000 hours in each). Not trying to give too many details about myself but I have one national award and am currently working on a manuscript with my current research group. My GPA from undergrad is 3.32 and my science GPA is 3.14 from 185 credits. My DIY postbac GPA is 3.6 from 12 credits. I submitted my app to all HBCUs, Kaiser, NYU, and Cornell (free tuition schools).

I plan on applying to both MD and DO schools since I have fee waivers. I am also from the state of Maryland and am leaning towards schools in urban areas and on the east coast.

Thank you @Faha! I was debating whether or not I should add Miami. Do you think I would be okay to add Einstein they are accepting the January MCAT.

I think @Faha will back me up when I say to not apply to Ohio U unless you are from Ohio. They accept almost zero out of state applicants.
