I have two interests: business and medicine. I was wondering if any of you know anyone who has managed to get the 4 yr degree at Wharton as well as having taken the recommended premed courses, succeeded in them, and do well on the MCAT. I have done a considerable amount of research on this, and I know it is a rare and very strenuous courseload at UPENN. I am a very hardworker, having never received a B. However, I do not consider myself a genius, but a very hard worker. I have received a composite 1600 and 2370, to show I do have some smarts
, but I do believe those achievement have arisen from hard work. I just want you to know this, because I want to know if I have to ability to successfully complete this endeavor at PENN (assuming I get in of course
. Knowing that one of the essay questions is "what courses attract you to PENN", how can I show what I want to do in a positive light (because I know this med/business thing isn't really "meant to be at PENN").
Here is another way I am approaching this. What if I attend the SAS and major in, say, biology. How many courses can I take at Wharton, factoring in APs, double counts, and the like? I am more interested in applied business courses like marketing or OPIM. How feasible is this?
