Hey guys!

I would love to hear feedback on my application and school list. I plan on applying in the upcoming cycle and am looking to improve my application. I especially am looking for feedback on my school list. Any schools I should add? Any schools I should take out? Thanks in advance!

GPAS: 3.75 cumulative, 3.65 science
MCAT: 514 --> 129/127/129/129
Oregon resident
ORM, Asian, Vietnamese
University of Portland, small private school
Clinical experience:

Scribing - 100 hours, will be closer to 300 towards application time
Hospital volunteering at Kaiser and OHSU - 300 hours
Looking to pursue more experiences during my gap year as well whether that be clinical research or other clinical jobs

Research experience:

2 years on the same project with one summer at OHSU: ~300 hours at OHSU ~1000+ hours at my school. 3 posters, no pubs

Shadowing experience:

I have heard scribing counts as a shadowing experience. But I hope to propel my relationship with the doctors at my scribing job into more shadowing opportunities. But as of right now, I have none :/ . I will definitely be having some in the future

Non-Clinical Volunteering:

Meals on Wheels (soup kitchen and bringing food to isolated people) - 100 hours
Active Children Portland (after school sports program) - 50 hours
Volunteer tutor for athletes - 200 hours
Volunteer at an assisted living home, play piano for them and a church service - 100 hours

Extracurriculars:

Tennis and Tennis Club
Piano
Intramural sports
Honors Program - major focus on interdisciplinary experiences in both academics and community involvement - 50 hours
Chem Lab TA - 50 hours
Chem workshop leader - teaching a supplementary course on gen chem - 200 hours
Adidas Retail Associate - definitely where I learned a lot of interpersonal skills and I see a lot of connections in service based industry and healthcare, but also a lot of major differences - 300 hours
Video Games (lol idk bout this one, but it is definitely something I do)
Huge Movie Buff, especially movie making, special effects, etc.
Learning music production

Honors or Awards

None

School List:

General organization of my school list is from top to bottom: MD that are near my stats --> MD reach schools --> DO. Really curious to see what should be taken out or what should be added.

Yeah I definitely added some reaches in there just on the off chance that it works out. Thanks for the suggestions!
