Cories, BN, or Khulis?

I cant decide wether to get some cories, a bristlenose pleco, or coolies for my future 36g tank.

I have heard that rams can be funny with other fish that occupy the lower levels of the tank, but i have never owned them so I will let someone with ram experience help you out.

That setup will be fine. I think a large school of 1 kind of fish (platy/cardinal/rummynose/etc) would look better than 3 little groups of small fish, though.

Will this tank be heavily planted?

I think that's a bit overstocked. Platies and plecos have high bioloads.

I'm going to have it be way over filtered, and be doing 10g weekly WCs. I know it's slightly overstocked, I may remove some fish.

I would really go with the kuhlis, depending on what your dimensions are, you can add a large group and the are very silly fish, tons if personality

Considering the fact that plecos have high bioloads and the tank will be slightly overstocked, i am now leaning towards khulis, although since cories are winning significantly, I would like to hear someone's opinion who supports that.

Thx,
Fishguy1111

P.S.
will i ever see the khulis like I would cories??

I'd say go with Kuhli loaches. I have always loved them! They will hide a lot though, but I always enjoy when they are out and about. Mine love to go all over the place in the evening when I turn their light off. Kuhlis are cuter too!!
