Where do you live? You included schools such as ohio, msu, nyit, that all have regional biases.

Also MSU is like >80k OOS tuition...keep that in mind

Drop Ohio for sure, they are very regionally biased. If I had your stats, I would apply to any program without a STRONG regional bias. That information can be found on this forum.

No need to retake the MCAT of you are aiming for DO schools. If you want MD then yes you need to retake, your chances are great for a DO acceptance

Use the search function at top of page. Do ALOT of reading. There are a couple of schools in Florida that should definitely be on your list.

Just avoid as others have said-- MSUCOM, OhioU-- and also University of New England(they have 90%+ New England matriculants) and Oklahoma State perhaps(OK resident preference)...... To make it easier, take a look at the AACOMAS matriculants data from last year-- should give you some insight to where most of the class is coming from in every medical school(just scroll down you'll see it)

Next time you are going to throw money in a bonfire let me know and I'll come get it from you. MSU, OUHCOM, PCOM PA and NYIT is just a donation to the school.

Which state are yo from? It will help you infinitely if you apply to schools in your state. Some DO schools are very biased against out of state. As for your stats, you're a good match. Your gpa is really high for DO and your MCAT score is okay too if not the best. Good luck!

I understand MSUCOM and OU, but why the others?
