You really should edit your post so that it does not include so much identifiable info. No need to name specific doctors, hospitals etc.

You could add other New York area schools such as Mount Sinai, Hofstra and New York Medical College.

Your MCAT is fine and you should receive several interviews. It is not possible to predict for any one school though.
