    The MCAT score makes chances with MD schools lethal, and with DO schools, perhaps best at the newest schools. Start with LECOM, UNECOM and PCOM.

    Skip the coastal Touros, PCOM, KCUMB, Western, CCOM, and AZCOM. I can't recommend LUCOM.

    Your chances are low for MD school and it is late to apply for the class matriculating in 2016. If you are applying MD next summer consider these schools:
    All your Florida state schools
    Quinnipiac
    Albany
    New York Medical
    Drexel
    Oakland Beaumont
    Western Michigan
    Rosalind Franklin
    Creighton
    Any new private MD schools opening in 2017 (Seton Hall, Roseman, etc.)
    You should receive a DO acceptance if you apply broadly to at least 15 schools and include all the newer schools such as ACOM, BCOM, UP-KYCOM, WVSOM, CUSOM, MU-COM, VCOM (all 3 schools).
