Your chances are great. KU would take you in a heartbeat (and probably Mizzou). I would add the schools Goro suggested. I think you are shorting yourself.

I don’t have a ton to say. If you were to add zero schools to this list you would probably be fine. That being said, given your GPA and MCAT, you are aiming low. I suggest adding in 5-10 top tier schools and seeing if they’ll give you a shot.
