You're good. I had almost identical stats and less spectacular ECs and got interviews at pretty much all those places listed that I applied to. Just brush up on your interviewing.

1) (publication will most likely not be submitted until after primaries are in - how do I present this on AMCAS?)
2) world ranked in 2 computer games (should i include this?)
3) (besides UMDNJs are any safeties?).
4) Do y'all think I'll get an acceptance from this list?
1) You can say at the end of the Research entry that a publication is in preparation. After it's accepted you can send schools an update letter.
2) Yes.
3) Georgetown seems safe-ish, too.
4) It' looks promising if your LORs are good, PS is intriguing and humble, and you interview well.

Thanks a lot! I'll just continue what I'm doing and see if there are any more opportunities along the way.

I'm gonna go ahead and call bs on some of these ec's unless you're a nontraditional student. What 2 computer games are you supposedly world ranked (unless you're talking about rankings that include 10000 players) lol.

You could apply to the public TX schools. You do have to fill out another application, but the value of a medical education here is exceptional.

I heard the Mayo makes all applicants lift up their shirts during the interview process, so you should be golden.
