i'm interested in premed, but i'm not sure is this is the right school for that.
so just to start off, i think my hook will be my future. i plan on joining peace corps after undergrad, and then after my residency, i will join doctors without borders.
maybe become a ob/gyn because they are desperately needed in doctors w/o borders (medecins sans frontiers)

if this has any relevancy, i'm asian (chinese)
but from i've heard, being asian is a disadvantage under affirmative action.

my wgpa is 4.3 but unweighted is 3.6
not too good in my opinion.

sat II's
chemistry 770
i'll take bio this oct/nov and i think i'll get at least 750 on that

studied five years of french at my school and im fluent in chinese, if that's a lang plus?
