Open to suggestions for DO schools; worried they won't accept me due to high MCAT?
DO schools aren't dumb. They know you will have a hard time getting into any MD school with a 3.29 GPA. The AVERAGE MCAT at some DO schools is alredy at around 510, so 514 is nothing beyond them.

Didn't know that. Will keep that in mind.

You can do far, far better than CN"u". Do a search and find out why.

Strike U Louisville. State schools favor the home team, and you have to be > avg for them. Ditto Va Tech, Marshall, and Western MI. Your best chances will be with the FL schools. You're fine for nearly all DO schools except maybe CCOM. I'd start your list with Nova, LECOM-B, PCOM-GA, ACOM, all three VCOMs, CUSOM, LMU, and Wm Carey. I can't recommend LUCOM.
