With your MCAT of 505 you should apply to DO schools in addition to MD schools. I suggest these MD schools:
UC Irvine
UC Davis
California University
Vermont
Quinnipiac
Albany
New York Medical College
Seton Hall
Drexel
Temple
Jefferson
George Washington
NOVA MD
TCU-UNT
Creighton
Loyola
Medical College Wisconsin
Oakland Beaumont
Wayne State
I suggest these DO schools:
WESTERN
TUCOM-CA
TUNCOM
AZCOM
ATSU-KCOM
KCU-COM
DMU-COM
MU-COM
ACOM
CUSOM
VCOM (all schools)
LECOM (all schools)

  1. Medical Student (Accepted)
I was in your shoes 2 years ago (mcat wise) some schools screen out <125 sub scores so I’d look into that before throwing away money. I think UCI might do that. UC Davis has a heavy Northern California lean so if you are socal or have no ties to Northern California, it might be hard
