Any of them, plus the HBCs, and your state MD school.

Don't underestimate how desirable you are as a candidate as a URM. I think that you can pull some invites, and then it will be on you. Granted, no school will do you any favors if you can't make it through med school.

Do you have trouble with standardized tests? This is fixable. We're addicted to these, but a weak VR is given the most slack out of all MCAT subsections.

I think verbal reasoning is the one section really hurting my score.
