I always think it's better to go through the mentor program rather than just request an upgrade. Even if you write good reviews. Everyone can improve in some way and a mentor can help point out a few things you may have been overlooking. Once you graduate you'll automatically become advanced.
If you do decide to go up for vote I wouldn't worry about tips or advice. Pretty much everyone gets voted in. Your rank will benefit from going through the mentor program because the better your reviews are the better the votes on them will be and thus the faster your rank will improve.
I ditto this.
There are no requirements to be voted in, as long as you've written 2 reviews. Everyone gets voted in, so you won't need to worry about that. The only people that I've seen not get voted in only had 1 written/published review.
It looks like your rank is pretty good for the number of reviews you've written, so you'll probably continue to do well with your reviews even if you do get voted in, rather than going the mentor route.
However, if you want some advice & tips, find a reviewer whose reviews you really respect and see if they'll mentor you! If you do well and feel comfortable, you can graduate after doing 2 reviews (when you graduate you become an Advanced Reviewer) AND you'll get one-on-one specific feedback, advice and tips from someone who is a solid reviewer.
Either way you choose, I wish you the best!
