Maintain your GPA, increase shadowing hours to ~40-50, maintain current clinical and non-clinical volunteering (don't stop entirely, but you don't need to invest significantly more time), and most importantly, don't compare yourself to others.

Do well on the MCAT and you have a very good chance of matriculating.

Best of luck to you.
