Hello! Thank you in advance for your read/input.
I applied MD is past cycle, received 1 II (5 holds if that means anything), got waitlisted, and recently committed to reapply. I should've applied more broadly, but I'm not going to dwell on that any longer if I can help it. I intended to take another gap year to strengthen my application, but I realize my 2018 MCAT score would expire for some schools for the 2021-2022 cycle. I am looking to apply mostly DO on this go.

MCAT: 1st attempt 501 (126/126/126/123), 2nd attempt 512 (128/127/128/129)
