      Remove OOS state public schools including both Nevada schools, Michigan State, Illinois, South Carolina, Alabama, Toledo since they accept very few non residents with a MCAT of 504 and no connection to the state. Add more DO schools and I suggest these:
      KCU-COM
      ATSU-KCOM
      DMU-COM
      MU-COM
      VCOM (all schools)
      CUSOM
