Hispanic/Latino

Which according to the grid I have around a 50 something % chance of getting in SOMEWHERE

Not all Hispanics are considered URMs. IF you aren't considered a URM that chart is worthless. I'm not sure if Latinos qualify as URMS for medical school admission, get an ADCOMs input on that.

Dartmouth and Brown strongly prefer non-trads. Switch them for a school like Ohio State/Vermont/Penn State, which are all solid mid-tier picks.

Remember that Hispanic URMs include Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Dominican-Americans, and Haitian-Americans, probably with some other groups. Many South American groups and Cuban-Americans, as well as people from Spain, are not considered URM.
