Which according to the grid I have around a 50 something % chance of getting in SOMEWHERE
Not all Hispanics are considered URMs. IF you aren't considered a URM that chart is worthless. I'm not sure if Latinos qualify as URMS for medical school admission, get an ADCOMs input on that.

You can delete New Mexico (state school that prefers their own residents) and Dartmouth and Brown. Realistically, with your MCAT score, you should be applying to at least 12 DO schools.

Dartmouth and Brown strongly prefer non-trads. Switch them for a school like Ohio State/Vermont/Penn State, which are all solid mid-tier picks.

Remember that Hispanic URMs include Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Dominican-Americans, and Haitian-Americans, probably with some other groups. Many South American groups and Cuban-Americans, as well as people from Spain, are not considered URM.
