You will probably be okay at DO schools but I’m not sure because of your very low subsection scores. Check and see if any of the schools you applied to have minimum subsection scores. With a 499 MCAT and a 3.23 sGPA and a very late application date, I’d forget about applying to MD schools and focus on DO schools. DO schools will be your most viable path to med school. And remember, always have a backup plan since nothing is guaranteed. Good luck.

You could add these DO schools to your application:
ACOM
ARCOM
NYIT-AR
WCU-COM
UIWSOM
UP-KYCOM
WVSOM
VCOM (all 4 schools)
PCOM Georgia and South Georgia
LMU-DCOM
BCOM
ICOM
LUCOM
Noorda-COM (new school)
You could receive some interviews with a MCAT of 499 but you will need to apply broadly to many schools.

gotcha thanks!! Is NYIT- Old Westbury tougher to get in to? I have a lot of family in NY so was just wondering. And are there any schools on this list you think I should avoid?

Your MCAT of 499 is not competitive for NYIT Westbury. From my list LMU-DCOM, BCOM and ICOM would be your choice only if you are not accepted to any of the other schools I listed. With a MCAT of 499 you may not have many options.

sorry to bother -- but I got official AACOMAS GPA's back today and Overall is 3.52 and Science is 3.31 (non-science 3.89) compared to the 3.62 overall and 3.23 science I initially expected and posted. This still wouldn't change anything right?

No, my school list remains the same.
