You are competitive for all DO schools. For MD schools you can delete Rutgers, Rowan, Alabama, USC-Greenville since they accept very few non residents with your stats. Add your other Florida schools- U Florida, Florida Atlantic, Florida International and NOVA MD (if it opens for 2018). Other MD schools you could try include:
Quinnipiac
New York Medical College
Drexel
Temple
Jefferson
GW
Georgetown
Oakland Beaumont
Rosalind Franklin
St. Louis
Creighton
Tulane
