Hi everyone! I just received my MCAT score and was wondering if anyone could look at my school list and could give me some suggestions. I've been using MSAR to help me but I'm a bit confused because of my stats (lower science GPA with decent MCAT score).
Want to get my list down to about 20 schools.

Physician Shadowing: 85 hours. (multiple specialties, international as well)
Non-Clinical Volunteering: 400 hours.

Other Extracurricular Activities: Boards of my university's African Student Association, Multicultural Pre Medical Society and American Medical Women's Association.

Other Employment History: Server for multiple years, retail and other customer service jobs (paying my way through school)

I know some of these are absolute reaches. Open to advice and opinions.

*Additionally, given recent events and my experiences in high school and undergrad, I am more inclined to apply to schools that are in more diverse/urban environments.
