Do you have any EC's that describe your personal hobbies or organizations you are part of just because you are interested? I feel like you need a bit of diversity in your EC's to show that you have broad interests, some of which are outside of medicine and engineering. It will make your interviews more conversational and the adcoms may see you as more well-rounded.
 
Median stats for those accepted to your state's schools are:

EVMS 3.6/31
UVA: 3.8/34
VCU: 3.7/30

I think you're in good shape for two of those. I agree you need to shadow a doc in primary care. Sports, artistic endeavors and hobbies are good to list too. The teaching and research (with pub) will help you.

Any leadership or nonmedical community service to mention?

Consider researching MSU, Drexel, NYMC, Tulane, UIllinois, Rush, GWU, Temple, Toledo, Buffalo, Loyola, Loma Linda, MCW, UVermont, Jefferson, SUNY Upstate, UCentral Florida, Albany, Creighton, Wayne, Rosalind Franklin, Georgetown.

What are my chances of getting into my state schools (VCU, UVA, EVMS, etc.)? In addition, what out of state schools would my stats be competitive?
