LSU, UConn, Central Michigan and Geisinger accept very few non residents with your stats and no connection to the state or region.
You could add these MD schools:
Quinnipiac
New York Medical College
Seton Hall
Drexel
Temple
Jefferson
NOVA MD
Creighton
Loyola
Medical College Wisconsin

Thanks for the quick response!

Out of curiosity.. why are you recommending Jefferson? It seems like quite a stretch based on MCAT and GPA..

Jefferson is a private school with a class size > 250 students. A larger range of students = more variable incoming statistics. And your acceptance prospects stretch far beyond academic statistics! Plus, Jefferson has a one-question secondary, so it wouldn't take too much effort to fill it out

Awesome! Thanks for the insight! I’ll definitely be adding a couple of the schools mentioned
