Help with school List and what to improve on


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I am a 3rd year Canadian undergrad student and I won't be applying until next years cycle, but I wanted to get a little ahead and research some schools. I listed my stats below and some schools that I think might fit with my stats. I would really love any advice on if my school list is pretty good and how to improve myself as an applicant. Also wanted to let you guys know that I will most likely be applying to US DO schools as well, but my first choice would be an US MD school. I would appreciate any advice you guys can give me, thanks for taking the time to read my post
