Hello everyone, thank you again for being willing to help. I want to apply broadly since I do believe I have a slight disadvantage of being a younger applicant(19), so I'd rather be safe. I am also applying to a few DO schools as well. I also took dual enrollment courses in which I finished my GEs and my bio prereqs but the rest of the science prereqs were at my 4-year college. I am also graduating in 3 years and taking no gap years.

Academic record: Will graduate in 2021 from a UC

Cumulative GPA: 3.99 overall

Science GPA: 3.98

MCAT Score(s): 518

Country/state of residence: US citizen, CA born/raised

Social background: Mixed male(Look mostly ORM cuz only quarter URM lol), Parents both went to college for certifications(LVN) but no degrees so first-gen according to AMCAS, FAP applicant since low SES

My hours listed below include hours that are projected into the future, so what I listed around:

Research: 1000 hours of volunteer clinical research. Have 1 abstract that is under review in journal as 3rd author. Also have 2 research posters that were presented.

Had another job as a paid research assistant but nothing resulted from it(200 hours)

Volunteering (clinical): 500 hours split between 2 free clinics. 200 hours hospice. 50 hours hospital volunteering.

Physician shadowing: 140 hours of 3 surgeons, was going to do family shadowing but got canceled

Non-clinical volunteering: 300 hours as board for a cultural-based club that focuses on volunteering

Employment history: Gas station attendant(300 hours)

Immediate family members in medicine?: mother is LVN

Specialty of interest: not sure yet

Interest in rural health (y/n): YES DEFINITELY

Schools to which you are applying: Can you please tell me if this is a good list? I will also consider applying to DO schools and would like if someone could give me good advice on those that are solid for residencies as well. I want at least 50 schools in which I am applying, as I do have the time now to write secondaries full time. THANK YOU AGAIN, BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
