Any reason why?
Your stats are very competitive for MD schools. As such, you have more doors open to you. If you really like the DO philosophy and want to learn OMM, and aren't gunning for the uber-specialties, then you'd be fine at the coastal Touros, CCOM (but look at their tuition!), PCOM, KCU, KCOM, DMU, Western and/or AZCOM

Have you done any networking with DO schools or MD schools? Your metrics give you a strong shot at MD that unless you already have a strong link with some DO schools, many DO schools will think you're using them as desperation safety schools. They would feel lucky to have you, but there's a real doubt whether you would be interested in attending unless you have made some effort to communicate with them ahead of time.
