Am also in Army ROTC, but definitely trying to get into a civilian medical school. I a strong application, other than my terrible performance on the MCAT.

I either attend medical school this cycle, or spend 4 years as an LT. I am going to try my hardest to attend med school now, so I have no regrets if I'm unsuccessful.

Would love recommendations for schools that

For MD schools your only realistic chance is U New Mexico. You are competitive for some DO schools including all these:
ACOM
ARCOM
BCOM
WCU-COM
LMU-DCOM
UP-KYCOM
WVSOM
LUCOM
VCOM (all 3 schools)
NYIT-Arkansas
RVU-Utah
UIWSOM
Idaho (new school)
Apply this month and submit all your secondaries as soon as possible.

Your MCAT is going to sink you for MD. You maybe have a shot at IS public MD but even that is a long shot. You're competitive for newer DO schools, like Faha listed.

See how the cycle plays out I guess.. but if you're ok with being an operational officer now, I would do your 4 years, retake the MCAT sometime in the last year of your service, than apply. Being a vet and an improve MCAT will open ALL doors for you.
