Hi! So I’m about to go into my senior year of high school, and I’ve been starting to look at where I want to apply for college. I want to do pre-med and go on to medical school. I’m currently a Florida resident, and I’ve been thinking of going to UF and, hopefully, their medical school, (mainly because of Bright Futures and because I’ve been told they have a great pre-med program). Is UF seen as a good school in the medical world? Will it hold me back from anything, such as my residency etc? Should I consider going to a higher-ranking school out-of-state?
Here are my stats if it helps:
GPA: 3.8 UW, 5.8 W
SAT: 1330 (taking it again in August though)
I will have 100+ hours of community service by the time I apply to colleges
I’ve taken Anatomy 1 with lab, Intro to Chem with the lab at HCC, I’m planning on taking Anatomy 2 with lab, MAC 1105, English 1102 this fall, still don’t know what I’ll take for spring.
EC: Thespians w/ leadership position, and I’m starting a club this upcoming year for students interested in joining the medical field.
If you need any more information please let me know, and thank you so much for your help!
