Hii! Im new to SDN. I had a lot of SDN member friends tell me to post here to get a better idea of where I stand. I'd really appreciate some honest feedback/anything I can do as a junior to improve my chances!

I am a public health major at UT Austin and I am applying in the 2018 cycle.

PAT: 19 (is this a problem?)
QR: 20
RC: 23
BIO: 24
GC: 24
OC: 20

TS: 22
AA: 22

GPA
oGPA: 3.94
sGPA: 3.90
bcpGPA: 3.91

Extracurriculars
2 years as a biology TA (did other tutor stuff too)
Freshmen Orientation Advisor
300 general volunteering hours
100 hours volunteering at a non profit dental clinic
150 hours (plan to do more): general/ortho
200 hours research in optogenetics and in synthetic chemistry
University Honors
Students Favorite Undergraduate Research Forum Award
Distinguished member of dental club at UT
Alpha Episilon Delta (AED) Pre health honor society active
Did some indian dance related work

What are my chances for the 3 texas schools? What are my chances for other schools like:

USCF
UCLA
USC
Michigan
MWU
uConn
NYU

Any suggestions for other schools? I haven't done any research on what schools are right for me, but I have had friends apply to these places in the past. I just wanted to get an idea.

Quite an impressive resume, you have an excellent chance at all the schools you mentioned. Excellent DAT scores and GPA! Because you have NYU on your list I would include Columbia too.

Good luck to you

USCF - it's a crap shoot. Even people with perfect stats don't get in.
UCLA - very unlikely you'll get in unless you're a CA resident.
USC - Probable.
Michigan - Potentially. Again, a competitive school so it's difficult to say.
MWU - I wouldn't be surprised if you don't get an interview since you'd be "over qualified"
uConn - if you're not from the Northeast, it's very competitive to get in here.
NYU - Probable.
