How to be more competitive as an Applicant?

Hi Everyone,
I've done a bit of lurking here but I am a bit nervous about not being a competitive enough applicant. I still have quite a few classes and the MCAT to take, but I am looking to be as competitive as possible as I'm slightly older than the average applicant ( I will be around 27 when I start medical school if accepted).
Stats
- Cum Laude undergrade, BA Psych - 3.64 GPA
- Post-bacc GPA - 3.7
- Currently working at one of the Top Technology Retailers in the country as a sales account manager
- 2 kids
- Volunteer in a NICU family room through Ronald McDonald House Charities

I plan on shadowing my OBGYN this spring, but am wondering what else I can include to be more competitive. I also still have Ochem and Physics to take.

Thanks!

It's hard to give advice without an MCAT. That is a very imp piece of being competitive. When do you take the MCAT? 27 isn't that old...I was 28 when I started (now PGY2).

Well, it depends on whether or not a spot opens up in the OCHEM this semester at the college im taking courses at. If it opens up this spring, I might take it in September. If not, I will probably take it next January.
