I suggest:

Miami
St. Louis
Albany
Rochester
Rush (note: very service/experience oriented with a 150hr service requirement. Avg student has 800 hours of community service, and >1800 hours of health care exposure.)

Rosy Franklin
NYMC

MCW
VCU
EVMS
Wake Forest
Jefferson
Temple
Drexel
Creighton
Tulane
Loyola

Uniformed Services University/Hebert (just be aware of the military service commitment)

Any new MD school, except Hofstra and Central MI, FIU, FAU and UCF. I can't recommend CNU.

Any DO program. Start with CCOM, KCOM, MUCOM, KYCOM and LMU

U TN
East TN
