Inside the tesseract
Here is a DO GPA calculation spreadsheet:

Fill in all your grades. Then substitute As for the worst of them.

I'd just keep retaking those classes you did poorly in to invoke the grade substitution policy of AACOMAS, until your GPAs rise to 3.3-3.4 or so (final goal depends on how strong yor MCAT is).

Your ECs are fine except some nonmedical/noncampus community service would be nice to see, as adcomms can't be relied on to consider supporting your parents to be an altruistic act.
