Do something that interests you so you can be uber passionate about it in the interview. Does that help?

Not everything you do has to be about getting into medical school. Just enjoy college.

Also, as this relates to what you can do to improve your chances, I'm moving it to the What Are My Chances? forum.

The shadowing is more than enough, but if your only face-to-face experience with sick people is one summer, you need to add to this either via employment or a volunteer situation. If not volunteer, be sure you continue some form of community service also. A research experience is also desirable.
