400 hours of research is about equal to a full-time summer's worth. That plus two academic year's worth of research would make you look appealing to strong research institutions (plus some posters/presentations, or even a publication). In additon, work on getting in a leadership experience. Everything else you've projected seems fine, though I'd encourage you to augment the nonmedical volunteering to appeal to more schools. Clubs don't help you much, BTW, unless they lead to leadership or community service, so join because you're interested and like the social outlet, not just to say you did. And get in some hobbies/spots/artistic endeavors, too, if you can.
