Get your food distribution service orientation activity up to 150 minimum to avoid getting screened out. You could also get screened out since many schools will average your MCAT scores for screening.

As described, I'm trying to find reasons to issue an invitation to interview. Right now, nothing really stands out, though you have quite a number of hours with senior adults.
You have a good DO list. On your MD list remove California Northstate since they have accreditation issues. You have several state public schools on your list that admit few non residents with your stats and no connection to the state (West Virginia, Michigan State, Northeast Ohio, Washington State, Minnesota, Kentucky, Toledo, Arizona-Tucson). You could add these schools instead:
Rosalind Franklin
Wake Forest
Virginia Commonwealth
Alice Walton (when it opens)
Roseman (when it opens)
