Refer to the MSAR to see how many applications, interviews, and matriculants each school has. A good rule of thumb is that a school will have 2-4x the number of acceptances as they do matriculants to account for some students not taking the acceptance from the school and enrolling elsewhere. MSAR will also show you the 10/50/90 percentiles of GPA and MCAT accepted and matriculated to each school.

Apply to the schools @Faha recommended. You could consider applying to VCOM, but you'd need a LOR from a DO. Even if you have one, I'd focus on that application last. Have friends/colleagues review your essays. With well-written essays and your scores, I'd expect you to net a few interviews.

Anecdotal, but I think EVMS will love your non-clinical experiences.

Hi, thanks for the comment! Are you saying EVMS highly favors non-clinical volunteering? Just curious as to what you meant so I can put an emphasis on the app/interview. Many thanks

My understanding is that EVMS is very passionate about serving the Greater Hampton Roads area's less fortunate, as that community has one of, if not the, highest poverty rate in Virginia. That isn't to say they favor non-clinical volunteering over clinical (any med school wants to see both), but I think EVMS in particular likes to see the kind of stuff you've done non-clincally.
