Chances fine for all three! BUT, you need more volunteering experience. Yes, I know that you were an student athlete, but you still need to show that you know what you're getting into, and that you want to be around sick people for the next 40 years. Need to show off that altruism as well. Medicine is a service profession, after all.

I appreciate the feedback! Do you believe clinical volunteer is absolutely necessary to build up on my resume, or would general volunteering be at least almost as beneficial to show my altruism? Let me know if I need to rephrase that.
