    at DO schools...great w/ 25+ MCAT
    at MD schools...decent with 28-29+ MCAT, great with 30+ MCAT

    study hard! honestly your ethnicity is going to help you alot, there's no beating around that bush. your GPAs are lower than avg so what you need to do is make up for it on the mcat. how many options you have will ride on that. i suggest EK materials in combo w/ your old textbooks and the AAMC practice tests 4-8 starting in january.

    good luck!!

    Native American = in like Flynn. Look at the stats on AMCAS website; not many native americans go to med school. You could prolly get into MD if you wanted to unless you're set on DO...
