USDO schools are your only shot, even then looking like a long shot. 

Apply ASAP, and get all of your LORs in order, and get working on your primary application.

Otherwise do a second degree and retake the MCAT.

Do not bother applying to USMD schools, your MCAT scores are solid, but not that great that to offset a 3.1.

BUT do you ahve a strong upward trend? That could help, i.e. if you had 2.0, 2.0, 4.0, 4.0

USDO it bro, 


the Canadian DO applicants keeps rising, and the "easy window is closing" (its looking at 250-300 apps for 50-60 spots) most candidats are now getting exposure to DO (ref letters, clubs, COMSA etc)- and the DO schools are trying to make an effort to take these kids. They dont want MD rejects in their schools(to a point). They also want life experience over GPA. 


The Gpa is on the low side, but still doable if you use the AACOMAS grade replacement of the worst classes you had- that should get you noticed and experience/DO volunteer will get you in the door. Goodluck
