    I am currently a senior graduating that switched from Pre-PT to Pre-Med. During my Sophmore year I incurred some really bad grades whic were a result of familial and the passing of a loved one. Amongst those bad grades I earned a F in Cal twice and a C in Gen Chem 1 on my second try as I was intent on having a reason to leave school and come home.A fter that I earned a couple more C's but re-took all classes and earned an A. Sorry for the long post, So here are my stats:
    MCAT: 28
    UGPA: 3.6
    SGPA: 3.51
    URM: Black Male
    Shadowing: 120 hours 30-Pathology,60- Family Medicine, 30-Physical Medicine and Rehab
    Extracurriculars: Academic tutor 3 years, Student Assistant 2years, Impact Peer Mentor 2 years, Muscle Dystrophy Association counselor 2 years, Habitat for Humanity builder 2 years

    You are good to apply to any DO school in the country.

    Also dont let the F in calc bother you. I had an F early on, then retook it and got a C, then tried to take Calc II and ended up with a W on my transcript (you can see a trend that I suck at calc huh haha?) and it was not brought up at a single interview. So long as your science courses are good (which yours are), your overall GPA is good (which it is), you did solid in your last couple of years in college (sounds like you did), your MCAT is good (which it is), and you have some other solid stuff to your application (which you do), then you will get interest from most schools. You look pretty solid. Apply to maybe around 10 schools (+/- 2 depending on the schools) and you will get in.
