How much patient contact/physician shadowing will you have when you apply? Did your volunteering include nonclinical volunteering?

I would start by cutting the schools that receive tons of applications/where your MCAT is well above the median: Drexel, Commonwealth, Temple, Loyola, Penn State, Georgetown, GWU, Tufts, Jefferson. Also, I think Rutgers heavily favors in state students.

You can cut the 2 Rutgers schools since you are not a NJ resident. Harvard and Penn are reaches with your GPA.
