You should not submit the secondaries for U Washington (accept less than 1% of applicants who are not from states in the Northwest), Missouri, Louisville and South Carolina (accept very few non residents with your MCAT and no connection to the state). Also rush expects many more clinical and non clinical volunteering hours than you have.You could add these schools:
Quinnipiac
Einstein
Seton Hall
Jefferson
Albany
TCU-UNT
St. Louis
Wayne State

Thank you for your help. Do you think if I take those out and add 3 or 4 of your recommendations I will be in a good place?

Yes. In particular Einstein, TCU-UNT, Seton Hall and Quinnipiac are in areas with large Hispanic populations. The Bronx (where Einstein is located) is 60% Hispanic.

Thank you. I really appreciate it. I will add those except texas since I'm not applying there. I am honestly counting on FIU. Thank you again
