Hey there all,

I got my MCAT score back recently and got a 508 (128/124/127/129).
Plan on applying next cycle. I go to school in Delaware. My cGPA is 3.51 and sGPA is 3.4.
AA male
No research, but trying to do some now during my gap year. (0H).
I'm volunteering once a week at a hospital transport department (100H so far).
I did one academic year of tutoring chemistry in my undergrad.(10H/wk).
I worker a couple of jobs in the summers and during junior year. (12H/wk).
I shadowed one doctor so far and am scheduled to shadow a couple others (15 hours).
I don't have much non-clinical volunteering (25H), but I want to get those numbers up during this gap year.
I should have a couple of good letters from professors whose classes I took and collaborated with during my tutoring.


List:

Reach
UCLA
U of Chicago
U of Miami
Georgetown
GW
Columbia

Target
Howard
Mercer
Meharry

What are realistic school goals with my application? Thank you.

Thanks! Are there any big red flags that you see on my application that I should focus most on before applying?
