Since K values smaller than 10^-3 are considered small, and large ones are greater than 10^3, what do the values between 10^-3 and 10^3 represent?

The value between 10^-3 and 10^3 does represent a small change either to the left of the right; it's not a very strong change. These values are more important when we get to acids and bases to determine what's a weak or strong acid and base.

The values in between mean that neither the reactants or products are favored.

If it is in between 10^-3 and 10^3 then neither are favored
