Not great but since the Masters is a 3.5 I think DO is a decent shot.

I do not know the list off the top of my head but I would say just apply to 10 or more, you should get interviews. :wink:

Nova Southeastern is in Fort Lauderdale Florida. As far as I know the only other in the region is a school in Dallas/Fort Worth area whose name I don't know.
