You're not concerned the OP's low clinical volunteering won't sink them?
Yes, but applicants with OP's stats have a greater than 95% chance for a MD acceptance. OP will receive interviews, just fewer than if they were 200+ clinical volunteering hours on the application.

I appreciate the feedback! I hope scribing will assuage some of adcoms' concerns about low clinical experience on my primary.
Unfortunately it won't help you in many schools' screening processes. Hopefully that can help you post-interview.

You're very much borderline for even having the boxes checked. With your stats and your very much bare-bones clinical experience you should have interviews though. Talk to people like LizzyM and Goro, but I'd suggest updating schools post-interview about your scribe work.
