    you sound well in line for sargent. if you wanted to improve your chances (which i don't think you really need to), you could look to get involved in some clinical extracurriculars, since sargent is the college of health and rehabilitation sciences. i started in nutritional sciences and switched to human physiology and absolutely loved my experience at sargent. i didn't like that most of my classes were through cas, but loved the ones i had through sargent. you get very individualized attention and will really bond with your classmates, especially those in your major. make sure your recs are great and get your essays proofread by a couple of different people. if you have any other questions on sargent, or if you change to premed, pm me and i'd be happy to answer any questions you have. i do have busy blocks, so it may take me a couple weeks to answer depending on when u pm me in the semester.

    I would say you're definitely a solid applicant; don't worry. The only thing is your ECs are a little scattered and unfocused. If you want, I would recommend doing what the poster above me said. :) Good luck, and don't worry!

    not very good at chance-ing people, but I've heard nothing but great things about sargent. the community is way more tight-knit than cas, so if you're looking to do pre-med, I'd definitely recommend it. my friends who are in the school are all super close to their classmates and the faculty. good luck!
