I mean, just want to say, all DOs "practice allopathic medicine". OMT is the only difference and all DOs I know personally do not use it...

If you mean the title of MD or DO, that is another thing I guess.

    Apply to your state MD schools (if you must) and hope for the best.
    If you are a native Spanish speaker, there are three schools in Puerto Rico that consider mainlanders.
    Put your energy into DO where it is more likely to pay off. With those two scores I'm sure you are aware that many DO schools may also be a reach...

    Basically, what I expected. I'm losing hope as this was my second attempt. Safe to assume I'll be taking a gap year and just need to bring my mcat up. Is it even worth it to apply this cycle? statistically there's probably less than a 10% chance, if that with an mcat like that.

    I can't recommend an MD application with these scores.

    What schools are within reach for a DO school?
    With your stats you have a chance for an interview at these DO schools:
    UIW (new school-Texas)
    ARCOM (new school)
    ACOM
    BCOM
    WCU-COM
    LMU-DCOM
    UP-KYCOM
    WVSOM
    VCOM (all 3 schools)
    NYIT-Arkansas (new school)
    RVU-Utah (new school)
    ATSU-SOMA
    Statistically your chances for a MD acceptance are ~25% (unless you are URM) so there is a small chance you could receive an interview or 2 from your Texas schools but realistically you should be applying to a large number of DO schools.
