You are competitive for most DO schools and I suggest these:
WESTERN
TUCOM-CA
TUNCOM
AZCOM
KCU-COM
ATSU-KCOM
DMU-COM
UIWSOM
ACOM
VCOM (all schools except Monroe)
CUSOM
PCOM
MU-COM
Touro-NY
Your chances are low for MD schools. You could try California University and Loma Linda (if you fit their mission). Other schools you could try include:
TCU-UNT
NOVA MD
Medical College Wisconsin
Oakland Beaumont
George Washington
Drexel
Temple
Seton Hall
New York Medical College
Albany
Vermont
Quinnipiac
