    Sure, you are good enough (and smart too). When you apply make sure you convey through your essays and interview, what made you decide on medicine so early and why the DO path in particular. If possible try to get some shadowing experience of an osteopathic practitioner. Also bear in mind, the DO path is as expensive as MD and that you and family is prepared for that.

    Have you taken any SAT 2 subject test (Bio, Chem, ...) yet? Most students applying to BS/MD or BS/DO have their SAT2 scores in the 750+ range.
    As for NYIT BS/DO program, it is pretty easy to get in compared to other BS/MD programs (your stats seem borderline for NYIT) with large freshman class and high attrition rate at the end of 3rd year. Some smart kids end up transfer to better colleges or apply out (if they got high GPA & MCAT scores).
    Check out the SDN site where people posted their stats and accept/reject status each year.
