I would call the universities and talk to someone about your application, ideally in the departments to which you were applying. Say something like,

"My application wasn't accepted but I'd like to learn from the experience to improve it for the future. Can you give me some honest feedback regarding my application and what I can improve to make it more competitive?"

I've had students get some great feedback this way.
