Chances are strong. Be confident that your extra curricular activities and a solid gpa/scores is better than no extracurriculars and perfect gpa/scores. I’ve sat on resident selection committee for years and we always look for hard worker polished professional than scores. You’re actually in the gpa range of studies showing who makes the best resident. Good luck.

Your chances are very good for interviews from those schools as well as your 2 state public schools in Alabama.
