State public schools such as Texas Rio Grande, University of Arkansas, University of South Carolina Greenville, Indiana, Florida St., UC Irvine, UNLV accept very few (if any) non residents with your MCAT score and no connection to the state. I suggest these schools with your stats:
Utah
Vermont
Quinnipiac
Albany
New York Medical College
Seton Hall
Penn State
Drexel
Temple
George Washington
NOVA MD
Oakland Beaumont
Medical College Wisconsin
Rosalind Franklin
Loma Linda
Also apply to at least 6 DO schools and you are competitive for all DO schools.

I suggest:
Wake
GWU
Gtown
MCW (maybe)
Rush (maybe)
Rosy Franklin
Uniformd Services University/Hebert (just be aware of the military service commitment)
Oakland U Beaumont
Loyola
Loma Linda (only if you are SDA or a very devout Christian)
SLU
WVU
U VM
MCW
Creighton
VCU
U UT
Any DO school. I can't recommend Touro-NY, Nova, Wm Carey, LUCOM, for different reasons. MSUCOM? Read up on Larry Nasser and you decide.

My relative goes to Nova so I’m curious, why did you decide to add NSU to this list? You can PM me if you’d prefer

The Texas public schools do love BYU students, but it's still a long shot with a 505.
