Your chances will always be best at the HBCU's and your state school(s).
Any further guidance will require an MCAT.

We are pretty similar grades wise.

With a 512 (not my first attempt) I've already managed to do pretty well this cycle. I'm not certain that's the reason I'm getting looks but you'll likely want to fall in that range.

Edit: Two of my interview invites are from schools on your list.
