Hi all,
I hope all is well. I have taken the MCAT and I am wondering what DO Schools should I apply to. Below are my stats:

Also side note, should I retake my MCAT if I am only interested in DO schools, given my low undergrad performance? I hope that my DIY Post-bacc performance has helped to remediate my poor undergrad academic performance.


Stats:

ORM

Undergrad (Including all pre-reqs) 2012-2016 at 4 year university:
Cum GPA:
3.165
Science GPA: 2.79
(Multiple C's in pre-reqs)

DIY PostBacc (Upper Level Sciences except for 1 intro level science course, 31 credits) 2019-2020 at a 4 year university:
Cum GPA:
4.0
Science GPA: 4.0

New Total (Undegrad + Post Bacc) :
Cum GPA:
3.32
Science GPA: 3.18

MCAT: 506

State: Connecticut

Extracurricular:
4000+ hours Scribing and Scribe Management Position
2, approaching 3 years, volunteering as tutor for under-served children (Exact Hours will be obtained )
Clinical Volunteering around 40 hours.

Additional:
I have an genetic disorder (Wilson's Disease) which was unmanaged during undergrad, which affected my undergraduate academic performance. I am now managing my illness well, and hope that my reinvention is enough for me to apply to DO schools.

Much appreciation for all of your time and help with the above!
