Would someone be able to give me some feedback on my chances?

Canadian Applicant (Visible Minority)
First Time Applicant
148 General Dentist shadow hours
Started university club, Club Executive for 2 clubs and a student's association
2 years of lab experience (1 year employed, 1 year at university - not able to submit for publication due to COVID19)
LOR: research prof, science prof, 2 dentists

oGPA: 3.2
sGPA: 3.1

Canadian DAT:
AA - 21
PAT - 23
RC - 24
BIO - 20
CHEM - 20
TS - 20

I am likely applying to 12 schools (the Canadian Friendly ones, private ones, etc.) since I know my chances are decreased due to my GPA. I am hopeful my shadow hours, extracurriculars, and DAT are enough to offset my GPA. Any advice or feedback is appreciated!

Please use the template: ► TEMPLATE: How to Format your WAMC Thread ◄

That said, your GPA will be a challenge. As an international applicant, you need a higher GPA to be viable. Confirm with the schools you want to apply to whether they take the Canadian DAT.
