Urgent response please:

Greetings,

I have been accepted to several college as a transfer students. Over the past 3 years I have emphasized on pure sciences. My initial goal was or is to enter med school. I graduated from a community college with honors with liberal arts math and science.

Later I was accepted into a program at an (Ivy University anonymous) where my GPA of pure science (biology mostly) dropped to a 2.5. This was just a program at (anonymous) I was a non-matriculated student. First semester of biology I (lecture= B- and lab=B-) second semester Bio II (lecture=C and lab=C-) which I would like to repeat. I know I can perform well, actually very confident. I was distracted due to family issues when I took Bio II. Then I took 2 upper level bio (I received 2 B-) and (chemistry lecture B-). I did one year of research in neuroscience at that university (anonymous).

I am scared to pursue pre-med because I dont know if I am good at pure sciences or if I will make it to med-school with these grades. It was a big transition for me from a community college to the Ivys. Honestly I had lots of personal factors which were obstacles and distraction. Now I have none of those problems and have been accepted to several colleges.

Should I pursue applied psychology at NYU, or pre med at Binghamton?


Some of my favorite choices are:

(NYU Steinhardt)- $32000 cctop scholarship but limited majors which I am not interested in or have any previous knowledge and experience (applied psychology, public health, science education and many more), anything Steinhardt offers.

(Binghamton University SUNY)- Accepted to Harpur college in biological sciences. Good Fafsa deal, almost same amount of loan as NYU.

    Edit: look at this note on loans

    (NYU Steinhardt)- $32000 cctop scholarship but limited majors which I am not interested in or have any previous knowledge and experience (applied psychology, public health, science education and many more), anything Steinhardt offers. No loans if i decline housing.

    (Binghamton University SUNY)- Accepted to Harpur college in biological sciences. Good Fafsa deal, moderate amount of loans.

    seems suny binghamton makes the most sense-might have more of an opportunity to find your niche upstate NY
