I've been focusing on applying to DO schools, but I was just wondering if it's worth applying to any MD schools. I'm a DE state resident (no instate med school). I have a 3.45 cGPA & 3.22 sGPA; improved MCAT from 496 to 508 (127/129/126/126). I have over 2000+ clinical hours (mostly in radiology, some in ortho). ~500 volunteer hours with the local fire house helping the public. ~50 hours volunteering at a hospital. My LOR's are 2 science professors, 2 DOs, my advisor, & my volunteer coordinator.

Should I consider any MDs or just stick to DO?

Where is your state of residence? Are you URM?
I'm from DE. Sadly we have no med school, and the program we had with Jefferson & PCOM was cut by the state of DE. So I will be out of state everywhere I apply

You are a good candidate for DO schools so apply to at least 12 and you should receive several interviews.Your chances for MD are low due to your lack of a state medical school.

That's what I figured. My dream school has always been FSU, but I know they admit like 95% in state so I pretty much have no shot there.
