Also, do any of the schools listed below seem unrealistic? Open to any advice that people are willing to give.

I have a ridiculously low cum and science GPA, and honestly there is no excuse.
  • 3.3 cum 3.15 science with huge upward trend. With retakes and (kinesiology classes included) my DO GPA is around a 3.45 cum 3.4 science.
  • URM (AA Male)
  • Research experience in Physiology (Kinesiology major) and in Child Psychology, worked in the field for the physiology study.
  • 250+ hours volunteering in hospital (ER/Physical rehabilitation center(PT)/Physical Medicine).
  • Worked as a medical scribe for 5-6 months in an ER at a different hospital.
Volunteered as a coordinator for community service group.
1 year as a volunteer coordinator for Habitat for Humanity

Upward trends are always good!

Suggest deleting NEOMED and Commonwealth, but replace with IU, and U WV. U OK, U CO, U MO and U AR should be considered, since you're a neighbor.

You're aware of the service commitment with UHSUS?

Thanks for the quick reply! Huge oversight on uniformed services... I will be removing that school.
Could I ask why Ohio and Commonwealth may not be the best idea? It seemed like the avg's for those two were low.

I will definitely add more regional schools, I wasn't quite sure if boarder states would really increase my chances.

Edit: Forgot to ask what (range) I would need on the MCAT?

Regarding TCMC, I believe they're trying to have a stronger focus on rural health...
