Any community service? All your non-clinical volunteering involves teaching and tutoring. No bets without your official MCAT score.

Sent from my SM-N960U using SDN mobile

Community service has mainly been through the hospital volunteering; I've helped in the food/clothing drives and community dinners at my local church, say for a couple hours a month
VA, sorry about leaving that out!
Without an actual MCAT score it is not possible to determine which schools on your list are appropriate. However, the Texas schools accept few non residents with no connection to the state. Post your actual score here when available.
