    Your sGPA and MCAT scores will get you rejected from U MN. Ditto the Touros and CCOM. NECOM has a regional bias.

    Goro suggests

    -Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (Ohio)
    -Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (pcom)
    -Lecom
    ATSU
    WVCOM
    NovaSE
    Pacific NW
    ALL Other new schools
