Hello. Kinda new to this but my stats:

GPA: 3.35 sGPA: 3.22 (DIY-post bacc : 4.0 with 28 credits and upward trend senior year)
MCAT: 502 (124/125/126/127)
non-clinical: 250 hours spread around helping at senior homes and helping serve in food shelters (both under the same organization)
clinical: I don't have much (20 hours volunteer at a hospital), but I'm going to be a scribe in a few weeks so I should get around 300 hours by the time I apply in August
Shadowing: 25 hours with an MD and 10 hours with a D.O. (going to try and shadow another D.O. for maybe 10 more hours)

1. I was also wondering what my chances are at touro NY harlem and CHSCOM because I have a lot family in those areas and my stats are low but seem in the realm of possibility there

2. Also does it matter that I don't have a really compelling story/personal statement? I feel because I haven't gone through some dramatic event in my life that lead me to become a doctor, I won't be taken as serious. I kinda just always wanted to become one ever since high school but I haven't exactly had a crazy turning point that lead me to become one or anything like a lot of other applicants.

You could also add VCOM (all schools) . LMU-DCOM is another school you could apply to but all the other schools I listed are better choices (check out the school thread on SDN).
Thanks for the advice! Do you have any insight on my question about touro ny harlem or CHUSCOM?
