Hello! I know this is rather premature, but I would love to get some opinions on how I stand as a high school sophomore. I'd love to be a doctor, but I am interested in law, as well, and if anyone would give me their honest opinion I would appreciate it very much.

I am applying for a summer volunteer program in Tanzania this summer, expecting to volunteer at a nursing home or at the local hospital, taking a community college class for APUSH as well. I'm hoping I can get into Stamford, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins, Brown, Columbia, the like. If you have any ideas for me in terms of what I can do to round out my rep sheet, get into colleges of that caliber, or how you think I stack up, please let me know!

Thanks so much!
