Does NYU, UDM, Nova, BostonU, MWU-IL, Western, and USC accepts a 19 AA(16 in RC), but all other sections are 18 and above along with a 3.1 science gpa and 3.06 overall, but post bacc is at 3.84(total 54 credit hours)?

Some schools auto reject if you have a section under 17, and rc is one of the more important sections. I'd call them all and ask

Nova- no cutoff, 21 AA and 21 TS is to be competitive, But I know one person with a 15 PAT got into Nova
UDM-minimum of 19 in science sections, 20 is competitive, But I know one person with a 15 PAT got into UDM, and I know another person with a 14 RC got WL at UDM
NYU- average is 21 AA, 21 TS, 20 PAT, and 21 RC. But I know one person with a 15 PAT got into NYU
MWU-IL-18 is competitive for AA, RC, TS, and PAT, I know one person with a 14 RC got WL at MWU-IL based on what I've seen trending on threads here at SDN.
Western-No cutoff
BostonU- 18 is competitive for all sections, But I know one person with a 15 PAT got into BU. I know one person with a 14 RC got interviewed to BU.
USC- minimum of 15 in all sections

So did that answered your question?????

It's not impossible, but I don't love your chances. With a 3.1 sGPA, you'd really needed to knock your DAT out of the park (talking like every section 20+). My personal recommendation to take a SMP or 1-year master's program heavy on science courses, and score at least a 3.6 GPA. Then retake the DAT around the end of the masters when you no doubt will be more prepared for the science sections, aiming for the scores I've just mentioned.

Here's a brief personal annecdote: I initially applied with an undergrad sGPA of 3.2 (with 2 W's and an F mixed in there) and DAT scores of 22AA / 19TS (none lower than 18). Got 2 interviews and then ended the cycle with no acceptances. I decided to take a 1-year masters program in Biomedical Sciences, while still applying the next cycle just to take my chances again. Got 1 interview, ended the cycle with no acceptance, and also had to prepare to retake the DAT since it was expiring. For my 3rd time applying (this cycle), I applied with a 3.9 GPA in my masters and a DAT of 23AA / 22TS (no scores below 22). Got 6 interviews, where I am currently waitlisted at 4 of them and was accepted to 1.

There are many ways in improving your application, mine is just one, but the main takeaway is to keep improving and never give up :)
