    Good luck with the US apps! If you're ok with DO, I'd probably try that before the caribbean also. But, DO vs. MD is a personal decision. If, for some reason, the US doesn't work out, AUC is a good backup.

    thanks for your input.

    just like kemper said, middle of the road. your gpa is about average while your mcat is a little below avg. make sure you have good LOR to add to your research experience. any journal publishment on your research?

    very much average, but if there aren't any problems in your app, you'll probably be fine. There are plenty people here with scores lower than yours.
