So I am looking to add more schools to my application, but I don't want to waste time looking into ones that aren't a good fit for me. Is there a list somewhere of schools with weird religious requirements (i.e., Loma Linda) or ethnic requirements (for example, I heard one of the schools in Florida is primarily intended for Hispanic applicants)?

I am a white male with no particular religious background...

Loma Linda requires a letter from a religious leader as part of the application and require 120 hours of service work during school (not that it's a bad thing, but it's different). They are affiliated with the Seventh Day Aventists and favor those from that religion, but not exclusively.

I think Loma Linda requires a letter of recommendation from a religious leader.

Right, so Howard, Meharry, and Loma Linda. Any others I should avoid?

Figure out which schools favor instate students and avoid those too.
Right, those ones are a little more obvious. I've finalized my school list:

UNC - reach

UF (FL resident)
OSU (also OH resident)
VCU
UNE
Louisville
Colorado
Nova

I don't think I'm going to add any more.
