Hello! I was hoping for some help refining my current school list. I'm planning to apply a mix of MD/DO but with a higher DO emphasis. As of right now my DO list is under developed as I'm focusing more on schools closer to home/well known. Would love to get some guidance on some other recommended schools with my stat range! I have largely mediocre stats, with a decent upward trend my last 2 years of college. cGPA isn't bad, but my sGPA is pretty down there. Hoping my MCAT will help raise my chances a little bit. I appreciate any guidance, thanks!
