DO student here, and I was hoping for some advice about if I should take step 2 on top of COMLEX level 2?

Some background on me: Step 1: 255+ . COMLEX 1: 650+. I did well my first 2 years, ranked in the top 10%. I am lucky to have 5+ publications. 5+ poster presentations.I am involved and have a decent amount of volunteering and leadership on my resume.

I am most interested to know if it will hurt my application if I don't take step 2? I really do not want to hurt my chances of going to my dream program. I am not opposed to taking it, but taking 1 test sounds so much better than stressing over 2 tests. And I heard PMR is pretty DO friendly, so I was curious what you guys thought!

Programs I'm really interested in:
Baylor (Houston)
UTHealth (Houston)
Emory
Vanderbilt
Spaulding
Mayo
