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).
