I submitted AADSAS late June and took DAT on July 19th.

Stats are:
GPA: 3.3
BCP: 3.1

DAT:
Bio-19
GC-22
OC-23
PAT-20
RC-18
QR-16
TS-21
AA-20

I applied to the following:
Midwestern University (MWU)
Western University of Health Sciences (WESTU)
University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry (UOP)
University of Southern California (USC)
Howard University (HOW)
University of Louisville (UL)
Tufts University (TUF)
Boston University Henry M Goldman School of Dental Medicine
University of Maryland (MYD)
University of Michigan (MICH)
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC)
Creighton University (CRE)
New York University (NYU)
The Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry, Temple University (TEMP)
Meharry Medical College (MEH)
Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU)..
I'm not a URM so Meharry and Howard is a waste. And I heard Louisville and Midwestern accepted 1 Asian out of like 300 students (sticky post) so that's kind of a waste since I'm Asian.

Anyway, I'm looking at adding these colleges to improve my chances:
Indiana
Kentucky
.West Virginia
Detroit Mercy
Marquette
Pittsburg
and any other suggestions?

So is it worth adding these this late? And if yes, which ones and how many?

First off, where are you from? (i.e. what schools are in-state for you?)

Second, I truly do not believe any school would discriminate based on race, origin or ethnicity.

Third, if you are not from the state of Kentucky, UK is a long shot (unless you have ties). Louisville however just added 35 additional out-of-state seats.

Honestly, at this point I would run with the list you have. It seems like you put a lot of thought into it. The additional schools are good schools (Pitt does not seem to favor in-state vs. out), but why do you feel the need? Relax: most schools are just now beginning to contact applicants.

Haha, I just really want to get in this cycle.

I live in NC and only state school is UNC which I'm applying to.

And as for race, that's what I thought but that's exactly what that stick thread said. Quoted: "
some schools accept very few Asians(06 Data: UConn: 1/211 Asian applicants accepted, Marquette:1/179 Asian applicants accepted, Louisville:1/151 Asian applicants accepted)." Link: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=635046

I'm also not really interested in the west coast schools (5 of which I applied). I mean if I get in I'll go but it's last choice thing. So basically out of 16, 5 are west coast, 2 are URM, and 2 dont like Asians lol.. that's the reason I want to add more.

Why don't you go for the dental-hat-trick and rack up all 55 schools in the US ? That will deff increase your chances. . .
