I am Canadian. What are my chances for top american med schools? Which american schools would you recommend applying to? What would you recommend improving in my application between now and September?

A few of my major ECAs include: -Student trustee of a major Canadian research university -Member of student government -Youngest board member of a national education advocacy organization - National chair of prestigio
Has any Canadian been accepted to an American Ivy league here and willing to talk about their application? Just curious - what do you think separated you from the thousands of other applications/ did you feel you had a good chance when you applied/ have any of you had a sub 3.7 CGPA? Also, on another note. How much do GPA trends make a difference - if I got a 3.1 first year, but a 4.0 in second and third, would this qualify me as competitive or would I still be an average applicant with a 3.7CGPA? Cheers!
