If your avatar is any indication, you will do well in Ohio.
You may well get an interview at Case, if your research is strong.

Applying is a crap shoot -to Top 20s is unpredictable! Any service to those less fortunate than yourself (nonclinical)? Your medical mission trip might not be impressive to some(many) ADCOMS. Your stats are very nice. You should apply broadly to many schools. Throw in a few reaches. Use the MSAR to develop your list. When you have a list come back and post it and people will be happy to help you!

I have suspicion OP will do well in Ohio as well, but not in Chicago.
