Just wanted to get an opinion on how my ECs are looking. I'm applying next cycle and would like to address any flaws now while I still have time.

1,200 hours non clinical volunteering (H4H, Humane Society, etc)
800 hours clinical volunteering (Hospital, hospice, etc)
1 yr science tutor
1 yr research (1 pub as second author)
Founder/President of college club for 1 yr
Various scholarships/awards
Fluent in Spanish, Portugese and French
Leisure activities: skydiving, scuba diving, hiking, and mountain climbing.
I also spent 1 yr traveling solo through ~30 countries over 5 continents

cGPA: 3.8
sGPA: 3.9

What do you guys think?

I also think you're looking pretty good, assuming a decent MCAT score, no legal issues, supportive LORs, and good interview skills.

I don't think I've done anything particularly impressive. It's all cookie-cutter stuff that I've been at for a few years (I'm 23 now, just graduated and at the start of my gap year). I guess my real concern is about how top tier schools would see my app since it's fairly vanilla.
 
Rock the MCAT and you're golden... Easier said then done. But your ECs won't be holding you back...
