I have a 3.3 uw, and a 4.0 weighted. I have always taken AP's and honors, never anything less (AP NSL, AP Bio, AP Calc AB/BC, AP Lit, AP Lang, AP Chem, AP World, Molecular Biology), and I've played field hockey, and track, and been an SGA class officer. Along with that, i have a science internship, am a part of the DNAcademy, STARS program, American Red Cross, and Amnesty Int'l. My SAT scores are 1990 and I know most def. that all of my recommendations are going to be extraordinary. Would UMBC be a good undergraduate decision if i want to end up in medical school? I live in Maryland, so it would be a smart financial choice. I cannot get into a combined med program, i know that. I'm applying only for my parents sake. Where else can I apply and expect to get accepted into? My dad seems to think that if I don't get into a combined program, i can kiss my med school dreams good bye, and that the only good place for a pre-med student is JHU. Neither of those are gonna happen, i feel so confused and down right now. I don't know where to apply anymore.
