    wow! very impressive and cohesive high school career you've had. I think 2 things to consider explaining in your college app are why you're interested in the medical field and why UPenn is the best place for your ambitions (prolly mention in your essays). I think then it'll be very hard to reject you.

    I have shown demonstrated interest for both schools. I have attended a summer program at WashU and I am in contact with my admission officers for both schools. I don’t think I will be able to visit WashU though.
