Here are the stats that AACOMAS calculated:

MCAT: 500
cGPA: 3.77
sGPA: 3.50

I'm an EMT and phlebotomist and have over 2000 hours of clinical experience.
I have 3 strong letters of recommendation and about ~100 hours of volunteer work.
I also worked my way through college.

Oh, and I'm a white female, Texas resident, and first generation college kid.
I'm applying to ~25 DO programs and ~10 MD programs. Leaning towards DO programs, though.

What are my chances of getting into a DO program?

I think they're pretty high if you apply to DOs broadly. The MCAT is on the low side, and is the only thing holding you back. I don't think MD programs will consider you unless you raise your MCAT to a 509+. If you don't make it, just focus on improving your MCAT score -- 505 is very competitive for DOs; 503 is around average.

Chances fine for nearly all DO programs. Skip AZCOM, CCOM and the coastal Touros.
You're circling the drain for TX schools, especially Baylor, UTSW, and UT Austin
