You are competitive for any DO school so apply broadly to at least 8 schools and you should receive several interviews. Where is your state of residence?

Apply to the schools you would truly like to go to. I'm not saying that you'll get into every school, but you don't want to get stuck with a single acceptance to a place you don't want to attend.
