How competitive is undergraduate p. with Medical Bound (w/ my stats)?

I just turned Junior now and I was greatly curious how competitive is the undergraduate program that bounds the medical school program which mean once you are enrolled, as long as I take required classes and keep my GPA, I am guaranteed for the medical school program.

I have hard that this program that I am curious is as competitive as IVY LEAGUE school so I want to do my best to prepare them. Do I have chance for ANY undergraduate program that bounds to medical school. I do not care about school name or prestige. I just want to go to undergraduate that offer me to prepare me and (possibly) guaranteed me to be in medical program.

If I do not have chance for undergraduate with medical bound, my next dream is to get into lower IVY such as Cornellv(Biology/ Premed Major).

UW GPA: 4.0
Weighted GPA: 5.03
UW Classrank: 1/563
Weighted Classrank: 5/563
SAT: 2030
Courseload: All AP loaded up + honors
AP Scores: AP Human Geography - 5 (Freshman year)
AP Stats - 5 (Sophomore Year)
AP Environmental Science - 5 (Sophomore Year)
AP World - 4 (Sophomore Year)
*Taking 4 this year and probably 5 more in Senior Year
*School Type: Large Public

Extracurricular Activity: (listing only major)
Sophomore Class President
Junior Class President
Cross Country Varisty (third year now, almost made state cut)
Piano (since age 7)- recognized in state-wide competition (__Music Teacher Association Excellent)

My goal is to get my SAT score close to 2200 and I will work my best to achieve that score by the end of the Junior year or by the october of Senior Year.

Also I want to pull up my classrank at least to third in my class (second would be my dream).

I moved from Japan two years ago (beginning of the Freshman year). I have permanent residency which I can apply to U.S. Citizenship in about two years.

    (we will excuse all the errors in your post as a language problem?)
    You do not sound as if you have the extensive direct contact in some way (research, or volunteering) that would indicate that you have the understanding and involvement in medicine as yet to be considered for the PLME program, and would be unlikely to get in. Your first question about Brown should be to explore (on line, in person etc)Brown as an undergraduate University and consider if you would see yourself there as a standard undergraduate premed.

    BrownAlumParent<<Thank you. I am looking for the volunteering work (or jobshadowing) at doctor's office which I hope to get pretty soon. I think I was too focused working on my GPA and studying for SAT. So if I have extensive commitment in medicine related field during high school year, would I able to pull up the chance (not just Brown but other school's program as well)
