What about clinical and non-clinical volunteering? Without that, your app is toast.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I have a bit over 100 hours of clinical volunteering and 50 hours of non-clinical. I also have a paid clinical experience that involved patient contact.

Great, thanks again. I had been volunteering in outpatient care at the time I submitted my primary and have been continuing since then.

Not a bad list. Continue to beef up the clinical volunteering. Here is what all I think might be worth giving some consideration to(not an exhaustive list). I listed the schools from your list that are a good call in addition to some other ones.

Michigan State
Oakland
Western Michigan
Central Michigan
Wayne State
Einstein
Boston U
Case Western(maybe)
Emory
Hofstra
USC
Miami
NYMC
Rochester
Toledo(maybe)
Wake Forest
Tulane
Saint Louis
Creighton
Medical College Wisconsin

Public schools with IS bias like Ohio State, Indiana, Stony Brook, Downstate, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin aren't great choices. A 3.55 is too low OOS. Likewise, if you can interview well, with a thorough list I'm not sure you need low yield schools with millions of applications and some of which show a slight IS bias on top of that such as Drexel, GW, Georgetown, Rosalind, Temple etc. Being a Michigan resident provides 3 very good IS options in Wayne, CMU and Michigan State and that's where your odds will clearly be best at(for perspective Wayne State interviews about 1/3 IS applicants.....all these OOS lower tiers that percentage is between 2-5% usually).
