YOur MCAT score is very balance, GPA decent, so you should be ok; but apply broadly say (20+ schools); probably avoid Western Ponoma and Iowa

I went to Western Ponoma open-house, and last year MCAt average was 29. I called DMU myself to ask and they told me to retake any MCAT <28 even for Iowan residents.

I think you should be fine at OUHCOM, but again apply as many school as you can afford to increase your chance. With your stats, I wont mind to go OOS. I myself apply 20+ schools, it costs a bundle I know; but it is just the way it is

Let say you got a decent chance to get accepted at any give DO school at 33% (i would love to take that odds). There is still 2/3 chance that u may not get in if you apply only 1 schools. Increasing number of schools thus will increase your chance significantly.
