    Your GPA is good. MCAT score is 1 point below average for those accepted (511 is average) so it should be fine as well. ECs look fairly good. I may suggest getting some shadowing experience as many schools don't see volunteering as enough to get a really good idea as to what life is like as a physician. If you are worried at all about acceptance you can also apply to Osteopathic schools as a backup as your stats are well above their averages. Keep working hard and apply broadly to many schools and you will likely get in somewhere.

    Your MCAT score does not put you in the top 10%. That's an obstacle.
