Really interested in hearing your advice on which MD and DO schools I should apply to:

cGPA: 3.8, sGPA: 3.7
MCAT: 502 first try/ 514 retake
MD re-applicant

Community Service: ~500 (non-medical), ~900 (medical)
Clinical Experience: ~5000 (medical scribe in various specialties)
Research: ~1200 (laboratory based), ~180 (clinical) - no publications, unfortunately
Shadowing (neuro, OB/GYN, oncology, internal med, ortho): ~600
Teaching Assistant in Biology: ~300
Leadership: ~400

Please let me know if more detail is needed! Thanks for the help.
Great job on your MCAT retake. As for a list, I will let others give that to you, but you should do well this cycle!

I think it might be more productive for you to make a list and have us critique it! I know nothing about your personal preferences, where you live, or what you want to do.

Make a list, post it, and then we can add and subtract if necessary. Your stats are good enough that you shouldn't need to apply to DO schools, but as a re-applicant, I would at least apply to a few.
