Hi all! I'm putting together my application for the upcoming cycle and was hoping to get some feedback. My ultimate goal would be to apply to ~30ish schools but I've been hesitant to add more higher tier schools because of my first MCAT score. Would adding DO schools to the mix be the thing to do? Any other suggestions are also welcome.Thanks for the help!
