Would like advice on my profile and any recommendations.
-MCAT to aim for?

Should I go DO?

Any schools you recommend/avoid for MD and DO?

Should I apply in 2 cycles or 1?
Answer to your questions

1) A 504+ would be ideal for DO's. For MD's shoot for 510+, the higher the better. With your GPA, a 514+ really should be the goal. The strong upward trend will work in your favor.
2 ) Yes
3) There is no basis to recommend schools without an MCAT score. Arguably most important part of your application is still missing.
4) Do not apply in 2 cycles. The merits of it can be debated but there is a level of stigma SDN will frequently state that re-applicants often have associated with them. Apply once when you have your best app ready.

State of residence????

Can you give us your year by year GPAs? I sense a strong upward trend, but it's really easier to visualize GPAs rather than a list of every class you got an A in.

There are MD schools that reward reinvention. You'll need a 510+ for them, 515, even better.
