Hi guys, I know many are getting nervous to hear back from schools at this point, and I guess I am one of them, unfortunately. But I would really appreciate it if anyone could give me any responses/comments regarding my stats. I just graduated from a Canadian university, and have applied to nine schools in the U.S.

According to AADSAS, my GPA is 3.66 (I struggled a bit in my first year - it becomes about 3.75 when my first year is excluded, but I guess that doesn't really matter at this point..)

cDAT scores are as follows:
RC: 22
Biology: 21
Chemistry: 19
Science Total: 20
AA: 21
Perception: 21

I have about 200+ hours of shadowing/volunteering at two dental clinics.

Schools I have applied to are (if you are interested):
University of the Pacific, Boston, Columbia, NYU, Buffalo, Case Western, Temple, Pennsylvania, and Pittsburgh.

I have recently heard from Case Western and Buffalo that I have been placed under "Continuing Review" for interview, which was quite discouraging.

Thanks very much in advance, and good luck to y'all!!
