    You need to apply to more schools. Your MCAT is on the low side but there are some DO schools where your MCAT could result in an interview: Consider adding these schools to your application:
    ACOM
    BCOM
    WCU-COM
    VCOM (all 3 schools)
    PCOM-GEORGIA
    LMU-DCOM
    WVSOM
    UP-KYCOM
    MU-COM

    Oh I know I have to add quite a few more! I picked the first three based on location (i'm a florida resident and sister's location) but wanted to see where else I had a chance! I was initially only going to apply MD but decided to apply DO and see which ones I have a shot at :) Thank you for your reply!! I will definitely look into those.
