Hello, posting for a friend. Was wondering if there was any chance for low tier MD schools or just stick to DO schools. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

  3. State of residence or country of citizenship (if non-US)
    CAlifornia
  4. Ethnicity and/or race

  5. Undergraduate institution or category
    Average public school
  6. Clinical experience (volunteer and non-volunteer)

    1300 hours working in two different doctors office (MA and Tech) over 2 years
    150+ hours volunteering at hospital as well as triage over 2 years
  7. Research experience and productivity

  8. Shadowing experience and specialties represented
    100 hours with a PCP, 5 hours with Cardiologist

  9. Non-clinical volunteering

    Not specified in these activities, but good fit for schools centered around a religious mission.

I appreciate the replies. I realized I forgot some information that I think may be relevant, so I edited the original post. The new information includes a previous MCAT score of 512 taken in 2018 as well as the fact that they are a good fit for schools with a more religious centered mission. Would this information affect the range of schools that they can apply to?
