      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.
