Hey thank you in advance for your input. I am a white applicant, CA resident, went to a top 20 undergraduate school, sGPA of 3.94 and cGPA of 3.96. MCAT 516. Had 3 research experiences, shadowing experience, volunteering at hospitals and retirement home, TA of a science class, member of a few honors societies and had leadership positions such as VP and secretary in multiple clubs in my school. I think my essays/ LOR are good. Where do you think I should be aiming for?

Hey Goro and Faha. I just received word from USC that I have been rejected. I feel as though it is very early as I have not received any interviews and, specifically I completed the USC secondary August 5th. Is this weird or unconventional? Should I be worried

No, it is only one school. You could add more schools from my list if you want to increase your chances for more interviews.
