    Your low clinical exposure and low non clinical volunteering hours will limit your chances for interviews at top tier schools and schools that expect high numbers of clinical and non clinical hours. I suggest these schools:
    U Washington
    Kaiser
    Boston University
    Tufts
    Hofstra
    Einstein
    Mount Sinai
    Rochester
    Pittsburgh
    Case Western
    Cincinnati
    Ohio State
    U Michigan
    Western Michigan
    Indiana
    Illinois
    U Chicago
    Northwestern
    Iowa
    Washington University
    Miami
    USF Morsani
    Emory
    Vanderbilt
    Duke
    UVA
    Add the 2 schools where you interviewed previously if they are not on my list.
    Some of the state public schools on your list are not good choices ( UC Davis admitted only one non resident last year).

      Thanks for the advice. I've edited my original post to reflect that my current job also involved a good bit of clinical exposure (being in clinic, talking with patients, etc.) until recently, probably around ~200 hours of additional time. I'll look through the schools you suggested. Much appreciated!
      Please make sure you count your hours properly and not double-dip. Also confirm with the schools about residency and eligibility just to be sure: Alaska helps with UW for sure.

      You didn't really mention what your PB GPA coursework is and what you took. Yes, Faha's list is more reasonable.
