    If you apply June 1st and to every school then you have a shot. Otherwise you should ideally retake the mcat and shoot for a 27+.

    Ok, I'll ask... how do you have 10,000+ hours of shadowing experience?

    GPA 3.50, 23O Mcat, 7 years as MA, 10,000+hrs shadowing physicians, orthotech
    DI NCAA Athletics.

    ANY CHANCE IN GETTING INTO A DO PROGRAM?

    10k hours is 5 full years of full time shadowing (40 hrs x 50 wks x 5 yrs). How did you make a living?

    He/she could be a nontrad whose MA work included directly assisting a physician during patient care, thus the equivalent of near full-time shadowing for 7 years. Alternatively, the shadowing includes an orthopedic tech. Or the OP was an orthopedic tech also.

    Are the MCAT subscores balanced? What is the sGPA? What are the other ECs, like volunteerism?

    I'd try to retake the MCAT if I were you. It seems to be getting more competitive every year, and that can only help your application

    You are exactly right. I got started in medicine at a very young age helping out in a clinic and became an MA in high school.

    only two world cups? Pathetic. I did 3 plus 5 super bowls. of course that was when my back was bad too and I had a hurt leg. I remember I scored 12 touchdowns in one game; it was the best madden 2012 game I ever played on my PS.
