tough to comment w/o an mcat score. as always, the higher the better.

its good you have clinical and research experience. keep at it.

w/ 22hrs left i think you should be able to get the sgpa to 3.5. although this is still on the lower side of those accepted, i dont think that this alone would keep you out.

seems like youd be a competitive candidate.

good luck on the mcat!

+1.

MCAT will determine where you will be highly competitive.
37+ = top tier
35-36 = upper mid-tier to top tier
33-34 = mid tier
31-32 = lower mid tier, low tier
29-30 = low tier
26-28 = osteopathic

Your ECs are shaping up well. Good work. You have something in all the categories I consider important, including a bit of leadership in organizing a fund raiser. If you could do more of the same this year, that will make the leadership stronger. Otherwise, with the continuing shadowing, I think you're going to have a very nice application.
