You need to get to some 30 hrs of post-bac to have enough data points to show reinvention.Hey guys I was wondering if you could help me tweak med school app school list. I am a Middle Eastern-European California resident by the way!
My undergrad was very competitive and notoriously tough on premeds so I didn't finish undergrad with the highest GPA. After a rough couple of years by my third and fourth years my GPA steadily improved. Now I'm taking postbacc courses to further better my GPA, while tutoring homeless kids and working as a research assistant. My MCAT score is 515(130, 125, 129, 131). Let me know what you think of my list(I was thinking 13 MD schools and 13 DO schools). I'm not very familiar with DO schools so this is definitely a rough draft. My main concern is the DO schools having good clinical rotation opportunities my third and fourth years. Thank you for your help!
Here is a more realistic school list:
UCR IF you're form the Inland Empire
Any DO program. Include UNECOM if you’re from the NE, OSUCOM if you’re from the Plains states and PacNW if you’re from that region.
So of your DO list, I recommend:
CCOM (but check tuition!)
I can't recommend Nova, BCOM, ICOM and LUCOM, for different reasons. MSUCOM? Read up on Larry Nasser and you decide. LMU has an accreditation warning, which concerns me. CUHS is too new and appears to be too limited in rotations sites. UIW refuses to post their Boards scores, which is fishy.
