      If you beef up your clinical volunteering hours to the 150+ range, you'll have a very competitive application. Your numbers are good all-around, and the rest of your ECs are all strong.

        As for your school list, focus primarily on mid-tier schools. Your numbers are very competitive for most of the medical schools in the country, but the top-tier schools are likely out of reach.
