Hello, I am completed my undergraduate from a school in Ohio (don't know if I should put the name) and am also a resident of Ohio. I graduated with a biological sciences degree. What are my chances for MD and DO schools?

You are competitive for all DO schools. You could add UP-KYCOM and MU-COM. For MD you are competitive for all the schools you have applied to. You could add all those from your list that you are considering, except Rush since they expect a high number of clinical volunteering hours. Your lack of clinical volunteering will limit your number of MD interviews though. What is your actual cGPA (obviously not 5.52).

Thanks for responding! Sorry missed the typo its a 3.52. For EC's do you see any where I can add more hours in any areas I'm lacking? I will add more shadowing hours in during the upcoming months. My dream school would a college in Ohio preferably UC or OSU, is that possible with my stats?

You have enough shadowing hours. You need clinical volunteering hours (100+ in hospital setting would be good). You have a chance at Cincinnati and OSU with your MCAT score.
