DO schools might hesitate to take someone with significantly higher grades and scores because they might think you will choose an MD school over their school. That is why you really have to show how committed you are to osteopathic medicine. That's why so many secondaries ask "why DO?" They don't want to be your backup if you don't get into an MD program.
So in a way, it's a good thing. Not saying you won't get an interview invite here later on of course...just something to consider for now. Your stats are great. I'm sure you'll be fine.
Interesting take on things. I actually haven't applied to any MD schools.. nor am I planning to...
Well, I'm still hoping for an interview!
