Hey guys, I was just curious about what my school list should look like. I haven't actually made one, because I fear that I will make it too top heavy or underestimate what schools I have a good shot at getting into. Thanks!

How much of the research is done vs estimated?

Is the pub submitted for review or has it not yet had a draft?
Submitted, not first/second author though
Also I am just not sure of actually how many hours I did research for, lots of it was remote/not in lab (I do a lot of R programming for the lab). That is why I said I am estimating

For a generic list, start in-state and radiate outwards. Respect the process in that even with high metrics, there are no guaranteed interviews anywhere. It would be good to know if you have done your homework on curriculum and student support at the schools on the top of your wish list. My suggestion is don't go over 20.

I suggest these schools with your stats:
Toledo
Wright State
NEOMED
Ohio State
Cincinnati
Case Western
Pittsburgh
Rochester
Boston University
Hofstra
Einstein
Mount Sinai
NYU
Jefferson
UVA
Duke
Emory
Vanderbilt
Miami
Washington University
U Chicago
Northwestern
Tulane
Thank you! I am definitely applying to many instate schools like wright state, ohio state, ucinci, etc. I think that the in state school I want to go to the most is going to be the Cleveland Clinic, because you get free tuition in exchange for an extra research year after the 4 years of medical school. I like this list a lot, and I am definitely going to use it, and add a few schools based on other suggestions I receive.

Will do! I am going to apply to every MD school in Ohio/northern Kentucky probably, on top of some OOS schools that I have good shots at and have averages close to my stats. I will try to keep my list at around 20, as you said. Thank you so much!
