    As a resident of Michigan, what are the D.O. schools I should consider applying to, excluding Michigan schools?

    I would see how the MCAT works out and just apply everywhere that doesn't have strong regional bias. And if your MCAT is good enough, maybe apply to those places anyway.

    This. All depends on your MCAT. Make a broad list and apply accordingly when you get your score.

    I was advised to send out applications on June 1st to be competitively early, and then supplement my MCAT later once I received the score. Was this ill-advised then?

    You should submit to MSUCOM first in order to verify your application early, then submit to other schools post-MCAT. You can't really build a good list until you have your results. I might also add Marian, LECOM-E, and DMU as they are less numbers oriented and you'll probably apply to all of them regardless of your score so long as it is a 24+.
