Why Colorado? Do you have some connection or affiliation there? They're public as far as my knowledge carries me.

Miami
Georgetown
George Washington
Jefferson
Pittsburgh
Ohio State
Cincinnati
Einstein
UCLA Drew
St. Louis
Wayne State
Tufts
Indiana

I had met one of their coordinators at the conference I attended and I ended up being really interested in the program. plus they were really pushing for african-american females but other than that nno affiliation with them

Consider adding Gtown, GWU, IU, Miami, UCLA/Drew. Swap out NovaMD for TCU since it's closer. Also consider the Philly Triplets, VCU, Albany, NYMC, Netter, Tufts, SLU, U VM, Creighton, Seton Hall, MCW.

Your're more competitive than your stats.
