Of you list, I suggest the following. I worry about the weak ECs. Strongly suggest getting more clinical experience. Applying to Sinai will be a donation. take your parents out to dinner instead.


michigan state
wayne state
ohio state
cincy

wright state
neomed
WVU
tufts
emory
tulane

have you already submitted your AMCAS for verification? If not, wait a year, get more experience to round out your application and apply in June 2017. Average your 2 MCAT scores and figure out which schools match your numbers. Further winnow the list based on OOS preferences, your preferences regarding location (urban/suburban as well geographic region), and schools' missions.

Not that I am an expert, I feel like you have a great shot this cycle. If I were to go according to what people have posted on SDN, I wouldn't even have a shot at an MD school. Going from 503 to 518 says a lot, and I feel like your gpa is pretty good. As long as you haven't repeated any classes to get that GPA, you have a great shot at you IS school and a solid shot at private OOS schools. I would apply this cycle and say in your secondaries that you are planning on getting more clinical experience during your application year.
